Lauper’s single “Just Your Fool” was added to iTunes this week. Meanwhile, People offered up another glimpse into Cyndi’s bluesy foray into the Deep South with this clip of “Early In The Mornin’,” which also features B.B. King and Allen Toussant.
What is it about Cyndi Lauper that makes us follow everything she tries out (including bright red lipstick)?
“Everything I ever sang, from jazz to rock to pop to dance, is based on rhythm and blues,” Lauper told People. “I looked at what was going on in our country and I really felt like everybody’s singing the blues, so I needed to take the blues music and make it uplifting.”
Memphis Blues is out June 22, ahead of Cyndi’s summer tour.
