  • "After more than fifty years in music, Glen Campbell writes the final chapter in his recording career with Ghost on the Canvas, a powerful and emotional collection of songs that offers one of his most moving and energized works to date. Along with songwriting contributions from Jakob Dylan and Paul Westerberg, the album includes guest appearances from Chris Isaak, Billy Corgan, and others."
  • "For more than fifty years, GLEN CAMPBELL has been among popular music's most successful and significant artists, a multi-talented superstar who can rightfully be declared a living legend and a true American treasure. Campbell began his career joining forces with the legendary WRECKING CREW who played with artist such asFRANK SINATRA, THE BEACH BOYS, THE MONKEES, SIMON & GARFUNKEL, ELVIS PRESLEY, and most famously, PHIL SPECTOR, with whom they helped create the famed "Wall of Sound". Campbell's life has taken many difficult turns but over the course of his astonishing career, Campbell can lay claim to six Top 20 albums and twentyone Top 40 hit singles. As if his musical career weren't enough, Campbell also drew acclaim as an actor and TV personality, with credits that include 1969's True Grit and four seasons as host of CBS' The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. The highly rated variety series saw Campbell joined by JOHN WAYNE, DEAN MARTIN, RAY CHARLES, CREAM, JOHNNY CASH, WILLIE NELSON and MERLE HAGGARD. Sadly, Campbell was recently diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimer's disease, meaning that 'GHOST ON THE CANVAS' will be his final album. 'GHOST ON THE CANVAS' sees Campbell capping his brilliant career with his final and most moving and energized works to date, a powerfully emotional song cycle that sees him accompanied by a truly dazzling line-up of songwriters and musicians. Among the tunesmiths contributing original songs to the collection are such modern luminaries as PAUL WESTERBERG, JAKOB DYLAN, ROBERT POLLARD and TEDDY THOMPASON, backed by a roster of players that includes CHRIS ISAAK, DICK DALE, BILLY CORGAN, BRAIN SETZER, RICK NIELSEN, ROGGER MANNING and THE DANDY WARHOLS."
