Along with Coolidge, the luminous new album features the songwriting talents of Graham Nash, Chris Stapleton, Stan Lynch, and Keb’ Mo’.

One of music’s most enduring voices and composers, Rita Coolidge released her dramatic and poignant new solo album, Safe in the Arms of Time, on May 4th on Blue Élan Records. The album marks the two-time Grammy winner’s return to songwriting, and as she did in her acclaimed 2015 memoir, Delta Lady, she drew inspiration for her new material from her personal journey. Coolidge, who co-wrote three of the album’s 12 wondrous cuts says,

I’ve written so many songs assuming a role like an actor, but this time I got to write from experience. This is the best record I’ve ever done. I’m extremely proud of it.
— rita coolidge

In many ways, Safe in the Arms of Time is both a reflection and a continuation of Coolidge’s remarkable history, one that took flight during the heyday of the ‘70s L.A. music scene when she sang backup on Stephen Stills’ “Love the One You’re With” and Eric Clapton’s “After Midnight.” (And astute music fans are well aware of how she contributed the classic – and uncredited – piano coda to Derek & the Dominoes’ “Layla.”) “The idea was making an album that had the same appeal of my early records – to make a roots record about my own roots,” Coolidge says.
