Angaleena Presley Reveals “American Middle Class” Album Cover
Since today (Sept. 1) is Angaleena Presley’s birthday, check out this exclusive look at the cover art for her forthcoming solo project, American Middle Class, due in stores on Oct. 14. The album was co-produced by Angaleena with her husband, Jordan Powell, and Angaleena wrote or co-wrote all 12 of the autobiographical tracks.
The title song opens with the voice of Angaleena’s dad, a former Kentucky coal miner, and many of the songs revolve around the struggles of people working to make ends meet. Often there aren’t any breaks or special perks for being in the middle, she says, but you have to keep going.
“You keep doing it. You be proud of it,” she says. “I feel like it’s a necessary evil. You recognize yourself as one of the heroes of the country.”
Fans of the Pistol Annies will also undoubtedly recognize much of that group’s signature swampy sound in American Middle Class tracks like “Pain Pills” and “Knocked Up,” among others.
