As mentioned when Cyndi Lauper released her version of Dolly Parton classic “Hard Candy Christmas” at the holidays, beloved pop diva Lauper has been busying herself with recording country album Detour for her 11th studio release. The album now has cover art (see above) and a release date of May 6 through Sire Records, and included are cover versions of country classics from several different decades. Cyndi lassoed such vets of the genre as Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and even Jewel for features.
