Description
Although she released an album of traditional gospel songs in 2004, it's been 16 years since we've been privy to a set of Iris DeMent originals. "It's easy to see why her admirers have been clamoring for new material," writes the Boston Globe of the Arkansas native. "When DeMent emerged in 1992 with her debut, 'Infamous Angel,' it signaled the arrival of an important new songwriter, one who could capture everyday life with an uncommon grace and simplicity. Like John Prine or even Raymond Carver's short stories, DeMent … took just a few minutes to conjure a lifetime of emotions." Songs include "Before the Colors Fade," "Mornin' Glory," "If That Ain't Love," and "Makin' My Way Back Home." "My mom was sick at the time, and a lot was going on," she says of the title track. "Mom was born and raised, spent most her life, in the part of the country known as the Arkansas Delta. I have a lot of memories and emotions tied up with that place and I just got so lonesome thinking about it. I wanted to point my car south and return to something, someplace, that in my mind, had always symbolized home. I just started singing to make myself feel better, and out came that song…. It comforts me every time I sing it. All that I love that seems far away comes back home to me."
