Michigan's Bettye Lavette returns with her 10th album and first as a representative of Verve Records. The new album, Things Have Changed, finds Lavette considering 12 songs from Bob Dylan's extensive catalog - from 1964’s “The Times They Are A-Changin’” up to “Ain’t Talkin’,” the final track on his 2006 album Modern Times.
Lavette scored her first and only Top Ten hit in 1962 at age 16 and charted six more R&B singles through the '70s and '80s. She won the W.C. Handy Award for Comeback Blues Album of the Year in 2003, followed by a performance at President Obama's first inauguration, a Grammy nomination and the 2016 Blues Music Award as Soul Blues Female Artist of the Year.
Things Have Changed is available in stores and online on March 30th.
