Phil Spector Produces Wife’s Album


Phil Spector, the world’s most (in)famous grim-faced, time-serving former Beatles producer with an afro, is releasing his first major recording project in 30 years. The artist? His 29-year-old wife Rachelle.

According to Rachelle Spector’s website, her debut album, Out of My Chelle, is “10 tracks of upbeat, mainstream adult pop, with hints of R&B, rock and dance.” The first single off the album is called “Here In My Heart.” It’s slated for digital download via Amazon and iTunes on June 8, and everywhere else July 20.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “Self, how does one create an album while serving 19 years in prison for the murder of actress and model Lana Clarkson?” Good question! According to Rachelle Spector’s site, the entire process took more than two years during “downtime” from Phil Spector’s first and second trials.
