Melissa Etheridge – Oscar and two-time Grammy winner – will release a new studio album, ‘This is Me’, on September 30th and will be the debut album for ME Records. Recorded in New York and Los Angeles, the album features 11 new songs all written or co-written by Melissa Etheridge.
“I am excited to be putting out an album that is exactly what I want it to be. I had some amazing collaborators who really helped craft songs and an album that is truly representative of where I am in my life at this moment.”
What is so fantastic about this new album, is that Etheridge is asking her fans to play a part of the album process, via the cover art.
The ‘This is ME Album Photo Submission App’ has been launched at melissaetheridge.com/thisisme/. Through it, fans can contribute their personal photos for possible inclusion in a mosaic that will be used for the album cover. Fans will have until June 27 to submit their images for consideration.
In lead up to this release, she has also released her first single – ‘Take My Number’.
