Default Laura Cantrell covers The Wreck

Trains and Boats and Planes explores the time-honored theme of travel, meditating movingly on the heartache of separation and loss. Cantrell delivers deeply-felt interpretations of a diverse set of tunes, including her bittersweet reading of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David-penned title track, along with poignant interpretations of Merle Haggardís "Silver Wings" and Roger Millerís "Train of Life," a wry take on John Hartfordís "Howard Hughes Blues," a mournful reworking of New Orderís "Love Vigilantes" (also included on the soundtrack album of the documentary film Body of War, alongside the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Eddie Vedder), and an evocative arrangement of the Gordon Lightfoot epic "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."

album will be available for download on April 15:
A brand new digital-only covers EP, "Trains and Boats and Planes," will be available for download on April 15. Laura's first new recordings in three years are travel-themed, based on the Burt Bacharach-Hal David title track, along with thoughtfully-chosen songs by Roger Miller, Merle Haggard, John Hartford, Gordon Lightfoot and New Order.
