“Glen Campbell Duets” Explores the Legacy of the Late Country Star, Revisiting “Ghost On The Canvas” Album – Check Out Collaborations with Eric Clapton and Eric Church.


The musical legacy of the late country star Glen Campbell is set to be honored through an album featuring posthumously created duets. Titled “Glen Campbell Duets – Ghost On The Canvas Sessions,” the album showcases Campbell, who passed away in 2017, collaborating with renowned artists such as Eric Clapton, Elton John, Brian Wilson, Eric Church, Sting, and Dolly Parton.

This project revisits Campbell’s 2011 album, “Ghost On The Canvas,” recorded after his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s disease. Originally intended to be Campbell’s final recording, the album marked a late-career surge of activity, including a world tour, a documentary with a corresponding soundtrack, and two additional collections of songs, namely 2013’s “See You There” and 2017’s “Adiós.”

Expressing his admiration for Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton remarked, “I’ve always admired Glen Campbell’s guitar playing and loved his singing. I was moved recently when one of his final performances, during his illness, came on TV. When I was asked to sing and play with Glen on the song Jakob Dylan wrote, it all just felt right, and I am happy to be part of it.”

Church reflects on his participation in the project, saying, “It was really special to me to be able to be part of this project. Glen was so important to not just Country music, but all of music. What a stallion!”

The initial “Ghost On The Canvas” album included tracks co-written by Glen Campbell and producer Julian Raymond, featuring covers by various artists such as Roger Joseph Manning Jr. of Jellyfish, Paul Westerberg of The Replacements, Robert Pollard of Guided by Voices – with Eric Church enhancing Pollard’s “Hope On Hope.” Additionally, Jakob Dylan’s “Nothing But The Whole Wide World” now boasts contributions from Eric Clapton.

Both the Clapton and Church tracks have been released as singles, and the complete album is set to be released via Surfdog Records on April 19.
