Lisa Marie Presley to release ‘Storm & Grace’

The Memphis-born Presley reclaims those roots on her new album Storm and Grace - an Americana-inspired showcase for her songwriting talent and smoldering alto voice. Produced with elegant restraint by 12-time Grammy Award-winner T Bone Burnett, Storm and Grace is a marked departure from Presley\'s previous albums, 2003\'s gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005\'s Now What, which both debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard\'s Top 200 ...more

Lisa Marie Presley is set to release her third studio album, ‘Storm & Grace,’ on May 15th and has several appearances planned to help promote the new album – including stops on “Good Morning America,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,”  "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," and “American Idol.”

The album, which is available for pre-order now on the iTunes Store, is Presley's first in five years and marks her Universal Republic/XIX Recordings debut. Produced with elegant restraint by 12-time GRAMMY winner T Bone Burnett, Storm & Grace is an unflinchingly honest piece of work.

With its rootsy, Americana vibe, it is, she acknowledges, a departure from her previous albums, 2003's Gold-certified ‘To Whom It May Concern’ and 2005's ‘Now What,’ which both debuted in the Top 10 on The Billboard's 200.

In a press release, Presley stated: "This album is a lot more stripped-down and naked, both musically and lyrically. It's me without any attitude or anger at a time of rediscovery."

Presley is scheduled to perform the lead single, "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," at the legendary Sun Studios in her hometown of Memphis, TN, on Tuesday, May 15 during her "Good Morning America" segment. She will appear on "American Idol" May 17th, "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" May 21st, and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" May 22nd.

Presley will be signing copies of ‘Storm & Grace’ at Sun Studios in Memphis on Monday, May 14, starting at 7pm. On Thursday, May 17, American Express will present "An Evening with Lisa Marie Presley" at the GRAMMY Museum's Clive Davis Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. After an interview Presley will take questions and perform a selection of songs from the album.
