Gloriana’s Rachel Reinert is being coy about the country group’s third album. Beyond saying the trio’s new release will be out this year, Reinert is not yet allowed to reveal the title, release date or even most of the tracks. “It’s still under lock and key,” says Reinert, who plans to preview several potential tracks during her performance 8 p.m. Thursday, May 7, at The Concert Venue at Harrah’s Resort. The only certainty about the record is that “Trouble,” the band’s rollicking single about an ex-boyfriend who done Reinert wrong, will be part of the collection.
“With our last two albums, we were mid-tempo and ballad-heavy,” Reinert says. “We wanted to get back to doing songs with the live show in mind that would be uptempo and fun and exciting — that was our starting point.”
Gloriana, whose other members are brothers Mike and Tom Gossin, has spent the past two years recording the album, while maintaining a nearly non-stop touring schedule. Known for a harmony-driven, country-pop style that’s been likened to Fleetwood Mac and Alabama, Gloriana released its last album “A Thousand Miles Left Behind” (Emblem/Warner Bros.) in 2012.
Reinert talks about channeling country firebrand Miranda Lambert for “Trouble” and how the group has come into its own over the past few years. [Read Full Interview]
