Info for Detour
Cyndi Lauper's celebrated musical journey takes an unexpected southern turn on 'Detour,' her 11th studio album, and one which finds the Grammy, Emmy and Tony-winning singer-songwriter putting her signature spin on a dozen classic country songs!
'Detour' showcases Lauper's unmistakable voice on country classics from the '40s, '50s and '60s and features guest appearances from county music stars Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, and Willie Nelson. Lauper recorded the album in Nashville alongside a band comprised of the city's top session players. The album is Lauper's first for Sire Records and executive produced by legendary Sire founder, Seymour Stein.
Lauper says recording a country album is something she's dreamed about for many years. Growing up, she recalls listening to singers like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Wanda Jackson in her Aunt Gracie's kitchen. 'When I was a really young kid, country music was pop music, so this is what we grew up listening to. These songs are part of some of my earliest memories so it has been an absolute thrill to revisit them.'
Lauper sounds right at home from the start, beginning with the album opener, 'Funnel Of Love,' a track Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly, recorded in 1960. Another highlight is the rollicking take on 'Heartaches By The Number,' a country standard previously covered by everyone from George Jones to Waylon Jennings to Dwight Yoakum. 'Detour' also features stunning covers of two classic Pasty Cline songs, 'Walkin' After Midnight' and her #1 smash, 'I Fall To Pieces.' Lauper says, 'I spent a lot of time in my room singing with Patsy. I had to sing a Patsy Cline song – or two – because her voice was like one of my girlfriends. That's how close I felt to her.'
For the album, Lauper duets with several special guests, including country music royalty: Emmylou Harris (on the title track), Willie Nelson ('Night Life,' a song he wrote over 50 years ago), Vince Gill (Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty's 'You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly') and Alison Krauss (Dolly Parton's 'Hard Candy Christmas'). Jewel also makes an appearance on 'Detour,' showcasing her prodigious yodeling skills on 'I Want To Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart,' which was the first country song by a woman to sell one million copies.
A Grammy, Emmy and Tony award winning artist with 30 sterling years and global record sales in excess of 50 million, Cyndi Lauper has proven that she has the heart and soul to keep her legion of fans compelled by her every creative move. Lauper recently became a New York Times Best Selling author with her autobiography – Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir – published by Simon & Schuster and wrote the original score for the Tony award winning best musical Kinky Boots.
Helping others has always been a guiding force for Cyndi and she focuses her efforts to make a difference through the True Colors Fund. An unwavering advocate for equality long before she became famous, she co-founded the organization in 2008 to bring an end to homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth and create a world where all young people can be their true selves.
In addition, Cyndi is the Honorary Chairperson and a co- founder of the True Colors Residence, the first project of its kind to provide a permanent, supportive and secure home to formerly homeless LGBT youth in New York City. Cyndi also continues to be a tireless participant in the struggle to end the HIV/AIDS pandemic and ensure that women are treated equally around the world.
For more than 30 years, Cyndi Lauper has been a songwriting provocateur. Her musical achievements are so pervasive that they have become entwined in the cultural landscape.
Cyndi first found acclaim in 1983, co-writing a pair of memorable singles "Time After Time" and "She Bop" for her seminal debut, She’s So Unusual. Spring-boarding off this success, she co-wrote most of her follow-up album, True Colors, including the hit "Change of Heart."
As her craft evolved, so did her nuance for expressing social issues, notably on Hat Full of Stars ("Sally’s Pigeons," "A Part Hate", "Broken Glass") and Sisters of Avalon ("Ballad of Cleo And Joe," "Say A Prayer").
Throughout her career Cyndi has penned tracks with an assortment of her peers including Billy Joel, The Hooters, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jeff Beck, Junior Vasquex, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Nellie McKay and Max Martin. In 2013, those decades of songwriting culminated in Cyndi’s first foray into Broadway, composing the music for the critically adored Broadway musical Kinky Boots.
The musical won six Tony Awards, including one for her score, which made her the first woman to win solo in that category. The show has gone on to set a box office record. All told, Cyndi’s spirited songwriting has earned her more than 50 million in album sales, two Grammys®, an Emmy, and a Tony.
