Music News

Melissa Etheridge will release a covers collection featuring her favorite songs from the legendary Stax label. Billboard reported MEmphis Rock And Soul will be released on October 7th, with the songs featuring additional verses written by Etheridge for the classic tunes. Etheridge, explained, “‘Hold On, I’m Coming’ is probably the first of these Stax songs I remember hearing when I was a kid. That intro and chorus — ‘Hold on! I’m comin’!’ If that doesn’t make your heart and soul soar, as it did when I was a child, I don’t know what will.”

The tracklist to MEmphis Rock And Soul is: “Memphis Train,” “Respect Yourself (People Stand Up),” “Who’s Making Love,” “Hold On, I’m Coming,” “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now),” “Any Other Way,” “I’m A Lover,” “Rock Me Baby,” “I Forgot To Be Your Lover,” “Wait A Minute,” “Born Under A Bad Sign,” and “Dreams To Remember.”

Melissa Etheridge says that luckily, her pipes are not only intact, but these days, she’s actually singing better than ever: “I think my voice is in better shape than it’s ever been. I think I’ve learned how to take care of my body and that makes my voice stronger. I really didn’t get that when I was younger. And just sort of wisdom through the years; you can just sort of reach into that on the performances.”
