Actor and social media personality Leslie Jordan has announced a duets album, Company’s Comin’, featuring several top country musicians, will arrive on April 2 via the Platoon record label.
The project, inspired by Jordan’s weekly livestream, “Sunday Mornin’ Hymn Singin’,” features Tanya Tucker, Brandi Carlile, Brothers Osborne‘s TJ Osborne, Katie Pruitt and more.
The first release from the project, co-produced by Danny Myrick and Travis Howard, is Jordan’s rendition of “Angel Band,” featuring Grammy winner Carlile.
“My dear friend Travis Howard and I would get together on Sundays to sing these old hymns just because we loved them,” Jordan said in a statement. “Somewhere along the way, my business partner, Mike Lotus, took a real interest in what we were doing and started looking up and learning about every old Baptist hymn he could find.”
“I think he realized, like we did, that the songs held something brilliant about the human condition and were a deep comfort to anyone who heard them, religious or not. He started posting our performances online, and the response was just incredible,” he added.
