A lifelong dream will be realized in early 2021 when Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees releases Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol. 1, a collaborative album Gibb recorded with the assistance of super-producer Dave Cobb and a host of country/bluegrass legends.

The album features “twelve of the Gibb Brothers beloved songs reborn,” with Gibb linking up with the likes of Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Gillian Welch, Jason Isbell, Jay Buchanan, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Olivia Newton-John, Sheryl Crow and Tommy Emmanuel for what looks to be an excellent collection of songs.

Here’s a trailer:

Said Barry Gibb in a statement about the project:

“From the first day we stepped into RCA Studios in Nashville (the very place where Elvis, Willie, Waylon, Roy, the Everly Brothers and so many other legends made their magic) the album took on a life of its own. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to work with Dave and all the artists who stopped by. They were all incredibly generous with their time and talent. They inspired me more than words can express. I feel deep down that Maurice and Robin would have loved this album for different reasons. I wish we could have all been together to do it…but I think we were.”

And Cobb:

“It was truly an honor to work with one of my heroes. The Bee Gees’ first album has always been a staple for me and it was surreal to get to witness the genius of Barry Gibb in the studio—he’s one of the greatest of all time!”

In addition to the news, Gibb shared “Words of a Fool,” featuring Jason Isbell:

Said Isbell of the chance to work alongside Gibb:

“Barry Gibb is one of the greatest songwriters and singers in popular music history, and I’m happy to say he still has that beautiful voice and that magical sense of melody. Working with him on this project has been one of the great honors of my career. He’s a prince.”
