Girls just wanna have fun....and sing country, apparently!
Pop singer Cyndi Lauper recently announced, through an interview with Bang Showbiz, that she will be releasing a country album. The 62-year-old says her motivation for making the genre switch is her age.
"I don't know if you listen to country music but I want to work with Seymour Stein - he was the co-founder of Sire Records - and I've always wanted to work with him. So I figure while I've still got teeth in my mouth let me go work with him! I also want to work with Tony Brown down in Nashville and do a country record, finally! I want to record all those songs I used to sing my guts out in my apartment to! It'll be out next year."
She didn't specify if her album would be all cover songs, like she hinted, or if there will be some originals. If she is working with Brown, she is in good hands. He has produced every George Strait album since 1992, and has worked with the likes of Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, and Brooks & Dunn!
Lauper broke out on the scene in 1983 with her album She's So Unusual, which included four top-five hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Those hits included "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Time After Time". In her career, which spans over 30 years, she has released nine albums, sold over 50 million records, and is one of twenty people to achieve "GET" status, by winning a Grammy, Emmy, and Tony award.
Whatever she does, Lauper always gives it her best shot, and we are excited to see what she has in store for all of us.
