MULTI-PLATINUM SINGER-SONGWRITER JEWEL
RELEASES NEW ALBUM LULLABY ON MAY 5
Jewel Launches Media Tour in Support of New Release Including Performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on May 8; Live with Regis and Kelly on May 13; The Today Show on May 14 and The Bonnie Hunt Show on May 19
Recording artist, author and philanthropist Jewel will debut her first-ever independent release, Lullaby, on Tuesday, May 5 in a partnership with Fisher-Price® and Somerset Entertainment. She will embark on a media tour in support of the new album with appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno; Live with Regis and Kelly; The Today Show; The Bonnie Hunt Show and others to be announced.
Lullaby was produced by Jewel and recorded at her home studio in Stephenville, Texas. The 15-track album features 10 self-penned songs and a few standards including beautiful renditions of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” The acoustic record is reminiscent of Jewel’s twelve-time platinum album Pieces of You.
“This isn’t just a ‘kids’ album, it’s really a mood album – perfect to relax to at the end of a long day,” said Jewel. “It will soothe and lull children, but was also written and sung for adults to enjoy and unwind with.”
Lullaby, the introductory album from the Fisher-Price Artist Series, will be available at major retailers in the toy and baby departments, as well as jeweljk.com, on May 5th – just in time for Mother’s Day!
Maintaining her country roots, Jewel is currently writing for her next country music album. The upcoming project is the follow-up effort to her successful launch into the format with the #1 Billboard-charting Perfectly Clear, which was released in June of 2008. In addition, she also continues her philanthropic outreach with Project Clean Water, a foundation she launched in 1997. The non-profit charity is working to improve the quality of life for millions of people by helping to provide clean water on a global scale. To date, Project Clean Water has helped over 30 communities overcome their individual drinking water problems in 13 different countries on 5 different continents.
