On Friday, September 25, 2020, BFD / Audium Nashville will release Earl Thomas Conley – Promised Land: The Lost Album, a compilation of a dozen tunes originally recorded by Conley in 2000 and 2001.
Conley, who had 18 number one hits and influenced dozens of artists died on April 10, 2019, at the age of 77. As an extremely talented songwriter, he wrote/co-wrote all twelve Promised Land tracks in the early and mid ‘90s. During that time, he recorded a few of the songs as demos but those particular recordings were never released. Over two decades later, the songs have been resurrected and will be available for all to hear.
Conley’s longtime significant other, Carole Scates said in a press release,
“This album is long overdue as Earl had always wanted to release just one more album. The sound and composition of these songs reflect the ’90s, the time period which they were originally written. Earl Thomas Conley was an artist in every sense of the word. His talent knew no bounds, and he will remain in our hearts for the rest of our days.”
One Conley’s daughters, Erinn Scates also added that she believes Promised Land is one of her father’s most creative projects.
“To his loyal fans, thank you for loving him as much as we did. This last album is dedicated to you and the man who spent the last years of his life devoted to it.”
Promised Land is available for pre-order here.
