On May 15, Lisa Marie Presley will release Storm and Grace, her first album in five years and her Universal Republic/XIX Recordings debut. The album was produced by 12-time GRAMMY® winner T-Bone Burnett and recorded at The Village in Los Angeles. (See below for track listing.)

Storm and Grace is a marked departure from the hard-edged sound of Presley’s earlier albums, 2003’s RIAA Gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005’s Now What, both of which debuted in the Top 10 of The Billboard 200.

“Just over two years ago, I went to England to attempt to write another record after finding myself in a considerably disheartened and uninspired state creatively,” recalls Presley. “Over an eight-month period, I wrote 30 songs. I was fortunate to be able to write with some incredible artists and singers such as Richard Hawley (from Pulp), Ed Harcourt, Sacha Skarbek and Fran Healy (from Travis), to name a few. Nothing was planned or contrived in any way and out of it came a very organic record that was always inside of me and that I am incredibly proud of. It was a dream come true and such an honor when T-Bone liked the songs and produced and played on the record.”

T-Bone Burnett had this to say about Presley’s work. “When songs from Lisa Marie Presley showed up at my door, I was curious. I wondered what the daughter of an American revolutionary music artist had to say. What I heard was honest, raw, unaffected and soulful. I thought her father would be proud of her. The more I listened to the songs, the deeper an artist I found her to be. Listening beyond the media static, Lisa Marie Presley is a Southern American folk music artist of great value.”
