Cassandra Wilson

New York, NY – eOne Music proudly announces a new, worldwide deal with Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter/arranger Cassandra Wilson. Wilson’s new studio album, “Another Country,” will be released on June 5, 2012.

Signaling a new direction for this most creative of artists, a majority of songs on “Another Country” are penned by Ms. Wilson herself, or co-written with her collaborator, guitarist and producer Fabrizio Sotti. Recorded in Florence, Italy and New Orleans, the new collection establishes an intimate, romantic mood, driven largely by a guitar-based concept.

Chuck Mitchell, VP of Jazz, Classical and Adult Music, states, “Cassandra Wilson is one of the greatest vocal artists of our time, and it’s our pleasure and privilege to welcome her into the eOne family. ‘Another Country’ is a very special album, and a formidable addition to her body of work.”

About the new album, Cassandra Wilson says, “One of the greatest gifts we can receive as human beings is the opportunity to walk in someone else’s shoes and witness the world through someone else’s eyes. ‘Another Country’ takes us on a journey filled with experiences that open our hearts and minds to the promise of many worlds with infinite possibilities.”

During her long, acclaimed relationship with Blue Note Records, Wilson won two Grammys, one for Best Jazz Vocal.

Performance in 1996 for “New Moon Daughter” and another for Best Jazz Vocal Album for her 2009 album, “Loverly.” Among the countless accolades she has received during her career, Ms. Wilson won the DownBeat Critic’s Poll award for eleven consecutive years, from 1996-2006, and again from 2008-2011.
