Download "The Road" from Emmylou Harris's Forthcoming Album, "Hard Bargain"There's just one month to go before the release of Hard Bargain, the latest Nonesuch release from Emmylou Harris. The album is available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with a manuscript lyric sheet of the opening track, "The Road," a number of which will be signed by Harris. And there are now two ways to take that song home with you today: You can now purchase the single from iTunes and download the song for free by entering your e-mail in the player below.
On Hard Bargain, Emmylou Harris's third Nonesuch disc, she offers 11 original songs—three of them co-written with Grammy– and Oscar–winning composer Will Jennings—that touch on the autobiographical while reaching for the universal. Two songs look back at relationships that were central to Harris’ creative life—with Kate McGarrigle, on "Darlin' Kate," and Gram Parsons, on "The Road," in which she recalls the storied time she spent with her mentor. A deluxe edition includes a DVD featuring six performances, "The Road" among them, interspersed with interviews.
