It’s hard to imagine any artist coming up on the scene these days ever managing to make it 43 years into a songwriting career. That’s a whole lot of music, made over the course of a lifetime – despite trends and the ebbs and flows of the industry. But, that’s exactly what Kris Kristofferson has pulled off so far.
At the age of 76, Kristofferson is ready to release his first album of new material in four years. Produced by Don Was, Feeling Mortal is a ruminative, reflective album. It depicts a songwriter digging further into himself, holding himself accountable for a life full of choices. It's a poetic, haunting, wonderful record and we're looking forward to giving it away to two lucky ND community members this week.
