Melissa Etheridge Has Nothing To Fear With New Release
WEST CHESTER, Pa., April 15 /PRNewswire/ — As one of the most influential artists of her time, Melissa Etheridge has spent the past 20 years pushing the boundaries — both in music and in life. Now about to release her first studio album in more than two years, the fearless singer-songwriter is back and bolder than ever with her new rock record that will she be unveiling live on QVC.
The multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter is scheduled to appear Tuesday, April 20 at 9:30 PM (ET) for a special performance that will include songs from her much-anticipated new release Fearless Love, including her chart-topping title track. During the QVC Presents QSessions Live broadcast, Etheridge will also offer viewers the opportunity to purchase Fearless Love, which has been specially packaged for QVC with an exclusive bonus disc, more than two weeks before street date.
“Melissa continues to be a trailblazer in the industry thanks to her unparalleled talent and honest approach to songwriting,” said John Kelly, vice president of merchandising for QVC. “It truly is an honor to have her perform on our QVC Presents QSessions Live broadcast.”
Produced with legendary producer John Shanks (who produced Etheridge’s four-time Grammy Award-nominated debut Breakdown), Fearless Love is an introspective album that is fueled with driven rock songs that are reminiscent of her earlier work.
“This album is definitely a return to my rock n’ roll roots,” said Etheridge. “I am excited for my fans to hear the new songs and am looking forward to performing them live on QVC. It’s going to be a great time!”
Fearless Love is available through QVC at QVC.com and 1.800.345.1515.
About Melissa Etheridge
Melissa Etheridge has been a core Island Records artist since the release of her critically-acclaimed eponymous RIAA double-platinum debut album. For several years, Etheridge’s popularity built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water” (from her debut), “No Souvenirs” (from Brave And Crazy) and “Ain’t It Heavy” (from Never Enough), for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her second Best Female Rock Grammy. The album went six times platinum and spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. Her highest charting album, Your Little Secret (#6 on the Billboard Top 200), included the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.” Her astounding success led Etheridge to receive the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996, and the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2007.
