SHAWN MULLINS TO RELEASE NEW STUDIO RECORDING
LIGHT YOU UP AVAILABLE OCTOBER 12TH
July 29, 2010 – Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Shawn Mullins returns with his eleventh studio release, Light You Up, on October 12th. Produced by Mullins and drummer Gerry Hansen, Light You Up marks a newfound level of musical and lyrical expression for the veteran artist.
Since his last studio record, 2008’s Honeydew, Shawn Mullins has undergone a series of transformative experiences leading to this captivating new song cycle. His experiences included delving into the collaborative creative process by intensive co-writing, and in one instance putting him atop of the country charts via a key contribution to the Zac Brown Band’s “Toes,” marking his fourth #1 single (and first purely as a co-writer), following 1999’s “Lullaby” and the 2006 Triple A/Americana chart-topper “Beautiful Wreck.” Further co-writing yielded nine of the 11 songs on Light You Up, which Mullins believes represents the strongest, most expressive writing of his distinguished career.
With a California theme running throughout the record, Light You Up features the sultry, groove-filled first single and title track (click here to listen). Additional stand-outs include “Tinseltown”, “I Knew a Girl”, “No Blue Sky”, “California” and “The Ghost of Johnny Cash”. Full track listing below.
