On September 18th, 2012, Grammy®-Award winner Dwight Yoakam will release his first all new studio album in seven years, 3 Pears (Warner Bros. Records). The 12-track
release, his 26th, is produced by Yoakam, along with two songs co-produced with Beck; “A Heart Like Mine” and “Missing Heart.”
3 Pears exemplifies Yoakam‟s ability to incorporate multiple, competing influences into a piece of cohesive art. It balances his country core with a fiercely independent embrace of rock, Americana, pop and soul and builds on his trademark edginess with a notable, growing positivity. 3 Pears contains heartfelt love songs, which showcase Yoakam‟s
authentic country vocals while maintaining his unmistakable classic sound.
