For the first time in her over 50-year-long career, Judy Collins announced a new album that is unlike anything she’s done in the past. Titled Spellbound, the album will feature all original songs written entirely by Collins herself.

Spellbound is Collins’ 29th album and her sixth in the past six years. With the announcement, she released its first single, “When I Was A Girl In Colorado,” today. The record is out on February 25 and is available for pre-order now.

“They say after the plague came the Renaissance,” Collins said in a statement. “Now felt like the perfect time to make this record because, after all that’s happened in the world, we need something beautiful and inspirational to lift us up.”

Co-producer Alan Silverman and singer-songwriter-guitarist Ari Hest joined Collins for the creation of the record, and Collins and Hest had previously been nominated for the Best Folk Album Grammy in 2016 for their duet record, Silver Skies Blue. The record’s core musicians include multi-instrumentalist Thad DeBrock, bassist Zev Katz, and drummer Doug Yowell.
