Jewel Picking Up the Pieces 2LP
Vinyl Double LP Features Duet With Dolly Parton!
Picking Up the Pieces is a bookend to Jewel's 1995 Pieces of You debut album
which has sold more than 12 million copies. The 2015 album features an
incredible duet, My Fathers Daughter, sung with Dolly Parton.
"Any self-referential notes in Picking Up the Pieces are fully intentional:
After giving birth to her son, divorcing her husband and dabbling in both
children's music and country, Jewel wanted to return to the signature
stripped-down folk-pop that gave her one of the best-selling debuts of all time.
""It's really a time capsule," Jewel told Rolling Stone in a 1997 cover story
about Pieces of You. "When I recorded it, I thought, 'No one's gonna hear it.
I'm just going to be honest and put it down on tape.' I didn't really clean up
all the edges." It's since been certified 12x Platinum.
"Though evocative of her earliest years, Picking Up the Pieces is still also
true to her country side, with "My Father's Daughter," a collaboration with
Dolly Parton that tells the story of Jewel's father and grandmother, the later
whom emigrated from Europe and was an aspiring opera singer. Jewel released her
first country album, Perfectly Clear, in 2008, and played June Carter Cash in
the Lifetime TV movie Ring Of Fire. And she's got one heck of a mountain yodel.
"Picking Up the Pieces will include new songs (“Love Used to Be,” “Mercy") as
well as unrecorded tracks that have long made the rounds at Jewel's live shows
like “Carnivore” and “Boy Needs a Bike," both of which she's been playing since
the mid-Nineties and are pure Lilith Fair-era wandering folk narratives with her
signature balance of gritty growl and sweet whisper..." - Rollingstone.com
