Lindi Ortega in Kelowna Sept. 26

Lindi Ortega brings her fourth album, Faded Gloryville, to Prospera Place in Kelowna.

Lindi Ortega

With only a few weeks to go before the release of her fourth album, Faded GloryvilleLindi Ortega has teamed up with Rdio for an exclusive Enhanced Commentary Playlist, which listeners can stream today.

The playlist features segments from an upcoming interview with George Stroumboulopoulos for The Strombo Show, songs from the new record, and an exclusive premiere of the album track, I Ain’t That Girl.

Set for release on August 7 via The Grand Tour—a new imprint under Last Gang Records—Faded Gloryville was recorded in three sessions, with Ortega teaming up with award-winning producers like Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Shooter Jennings), Colin Linden (T Bone Burnett) and the Muscle Shoals-based team of Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) and John Paul White (Civil Wars).

The goal was to create a record as broad and varied as Ortega’s influences, which run the gamut from ’70s country records to classic soul. Although all three sessions were different, every one of them focused on live studio takes, capturing both the rough-edged rawness of Ortega’s live performances and the smooth salve of her voice.
