From Another World is Lauderdale’s 32nd studio album and it reunites him with the team behind 2018 release Time Flies including co-producer/bassist Jay Weaver and GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer David Leonard (Prince, John Mellencamp, Toto).
The album features collaborations with country legend Melba Montgomery, award-winning producer-songwriter Buddy Cannon, and emerging Americana star Logan Ledger.
“A long time ago, I decided that with each record, I would ignore the categories people tried to put me into and just make the music that was in my heart,” says Lauderdale. “This album is about the search for connection, love and understanding between people, about finding empathy in a world where it feels like folks are more and more at loggerheads. When the world outside your window feels too tough to bear, I hope you’ll step into the world we’ve created here.”
Over his career to date Lauderdale has released more than 30 albums spanning a wide range of genres including roots music, country, bluegrass, soul, R&B and rock.
