ALBUM COVER: Cyndi Lauper - "Memphis Blues"

Memphis Blues has a release date of June 22—which also happens to be the day Lady Gaga’s Viva Glam campaign partner Cyndi turns 57! The album of covers, which in addition to BB King and Jonny Lang also features guests such as Charlie Musselwhite and Allen Toussaint, will be released via Downtown Records.
Lauper announced via her official Twitter account in December 2009 that she would be recording a blues album. Sessions began in February 2010 at Electrophonic Studios in Memphis, Tennessee with producer Scott Bomar and her frequent collaborator Bill Wittman and continued in March with guests Charlie Musselwhite, Ann Peebles and Allen Toussaint.
