Carole King Announces New Album: <i>The Legendary Demos</i>

Carole King announced today her new album, The Legendary Demos, a previously unreleased collection of 13 original demo recordings of some of her most iconic songs. The album is set for an April 24 release.

The Legendary Demos contains the original recordings of ”(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend” and “It’s Too Late.”

On April 10 King will also publish her first book, “A Natural Woman” through Grand Central Publishing.

King’s 1971 album Tapestry received a Diamond Award for sales exceeding 10 million in the United States. As a songwriter in the 1960’s for Aldon Music, King’s tracks were hugely successful for numerous artists. Bobby Vee hit No. 1 for “Take Good Care of My Baby” in 1961. “Crying in the Rain” reached No. 10 for the Everly Brothers and found major success with both “Just Once in My Life ” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin.”
