Het nieuwe album van Melissa Etheridge komt uit op 17 september via BMG - One way out
Het album bestaat uit een collectie songs die ze geschreven heeft eind jaren 80, begin jaren 90 en die nooit eerder werden uitgebracht.

INFO/BIO
“One Way Out” is Melissa Etheridge's upcoming album coming this fall. The album consists of a collection of music written by Etheridge in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s that never made the cut….until now. “I’m so excited to bring these songs to my fans. Years later I am still moved and can’t wait to share these tracks live” says Etheridge. The album will be available on September 17 via BMG on all digital platforms, in stores, and will be available on colored vinly exclusively at Barnes & Noble.

Etheridge stumbled upon these decades old songs/demos years ago while gathering materials for a retrospective box set. As she went through the songs, it brought her back to the start of her career and how they just weren’t right for that particular time or album. Some of the tracks were written before she had even come out and never felt comfortable releasing them, but knew they would be perfect for the box set. In 2013, the singer found herself back at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with her original band (Fritz Lewak, John Shanks, Kevin McCormick) and would give these songs a new life. Shortly after she finished the records, she would part ways with her label and the box set was shelved. Melissa would begin working on new material and once again, those songs were set aside. That is, until 2020 when she was sorting through old files to share with fans on Etheridge TV’s Friday Night Time Machine show. The time was finally right. Fans will finally get a deeper glimpse to who Melissa was then, when she releases One Way Out this fall. Check out the tracklisting below which includes two songs recorded live at the Roxy in Los Angeles in 2002!

ABOUT MELISSA ETHERIDGE
Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 Grammy Awards show. For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't It Heavy," for which she won a Grammy® in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am (1993). The collection featured the massive hits, "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second Grammy® Award for Best Female Rock Performance. In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, which was distinguished by the hit single, "I Want to Come Over." Her astounding success that year led to Etheridge receiving the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996.
Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. In February 2007, Melissa Etheridge celebrated a career milestone with a victory in the “Best Song” category at the Academy® Awards for “I Need to Wake Up,” written for the Al Gore documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth. As a performer and songwriter, Etheridge has shown herself to be an artist who has never allowed “inconvenient truths” to keep her down. Earlier in her recording career, Etheridge acknowledged her sexual orientation when it was considered less than prudent to do so. In October 2004, Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer, a health battle that, with her typical tenacity, she won. Despite losing her hair from chemotherapy, Etheridge appeared on the 2005 Grammy® telecast to sing “Piece of My Heart” in tribute to Janis Joplin. By doing so she gave hope to many women afflicted with the disease.
On October 7, 2016 Melissa Etheridge released Memphis Rock & Soul, her first album since 2014’s critically lauded This Is M.E. Recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis, the album received stellar reviews from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, Parade, Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and more. She followed that up with the release of The Medicine Show in April, 2019. For The Medicine Show, Melissa reunited with celebrated producer John Shanks and sounds as rousing as ever, bringing a new level of artistry to her 15th studio recording. The Medicine Show deals with universal themes of renewal, reconciliation, reckoning, compassion and, most profoundly, healing.
In June 2020 Melissa launched Etheridge TV, an independent channel built on the Maestro platform. Etheridge goes live five days a week for her fans, each day offering something different. That same month Melissa also announced the launch of The Etheridge Foundation. Through the foundation, the singer hopes to raise money to support healthy new research into the causes and effects of opioid addiction. She wants to partner with and support organizations that delve into new ways of understanding and treating underlying mental health issues in conjunction with drug addiction. She hopes to find ways for people to seek treatment outside of pharmaceutical norms and find new answers and relief for those suffering from the devastating effects of addiction.
