"See You There" offers stunning new takes on his career-defining hits, including "Gentle On My Mind," "By The Time I Get To Phoenix," Hey Little One," "Wichita Lineman," "Galveston" and "Rhinestone Cowboy" among others.
The story behind "See You There" echoes that of his 1967 breakthrough album, "Gentle On My Mind." Both were recordings that Campbell never intended to be released as an album, sessions that occurred simply because the songs yearned to be sung. While recording 2012's "Ghost On The Canvas," Glen found himself at a crossroads. While he forged vibrant new artistic relationships – acolytes Jakob Dylan, Paul Westerberg and Teddy Thompson penned songs for the album and it featured guest appearances by such admirers as Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan, Brian Setzer and members of the Dandy Warhols – he simultaneously felt a tug from some of his earliest hit singles. So he laid down new vocals for these songs – and then set the tracks aside. Months later, when Dave Kaplan (Surfdog Rcds.) played Campbell’s compelling takes on his classic hits, he was struck by the power of the intimate recordings. Kaplan enlisted longtime collaborator Dave Darling, and the pair decided to bring a group of musicians into the studio that would complement Glen’s vocals. The resulting album is at once chilling, uplifting, haunting and spine-tingling.
