“This album is a lot more stripped-down and naked, both musically and lyrically,” says Presley. “It’s me without any attitude or anger at a time of rediscovery.”

“Storm & Grace is the album she was born to make – a raw, powerful country, folk and blues collection that finds her embracing her Southern roots and family name,” said Rolling Stone. Entertainment Weekly praised the “smoky, spooky” single “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” while Spinner.com observed: “Presley has made the strongest album of her career in the upcoming Storm & Grace. It’s a moody masterpiece, exploring the demons and angels of her life to the tune of country-spiced downbeat pop.”
The album, which is available for pre-order now on the iTunes Store, is Presley’s first in five years and marks her Universal Republic/XIX Recordings debut. Produced with elegant restraint by 12-time GRAMMY® winner T Bone Burnett, Storm & Grace is an unflinchingly honest piece of work. With its rootsy, Americana vibe, it is, she acknowledges, a departure from her previous albums, 2003’s Gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005’s Now What, which both debuted in the Top 10 on The Billboard’s 200.
