Betty Buckley's new album "Ghostlight," which reunites the Tony-winning actress with her longtime friend and producer T Bone Burnett, will be released Sept. 16 by Palmetto Records.

“T Bone single-handedly changed the world of music and makes each project more perfect than the last,” said Buckley, who first worked with the producer when they were both 19 in Fort Worth, TX, in a statement. “The gift of this project is beyond my ability to even express; it is my dream record.”

“All great art comes from the edge, not a place of comfort,” added Burnett. “Our vision was for a ghostly haunting sound, which I called ‘crime jazz,’ giving the project a timeless feel.”

The title of the recording, according to press notes, comes from "the tradition in the theatre where, after the performance in the dark theatre, a lone light bulb is left on at night to keep the ghosts company. This light is called a ghost light."

"Ghostlight" was recorded at the Village Studios in Los Angeles.



"Ghostlight" will be available for sale as a commemorative limited art box, which includes two separate vinyl records of the complete recording, a 24-page booklet of photos and notes, as well as CD copies of the Ghostlight recording and “Bootleg: Boardmixes from the Road,” the promo CD for "Ghostlight." It will also be sold as a CD and booklet.
