Calling all Cherlene fans… Kenny Loggins devotees, too!
FX’s award-winning animated half-hour comedy smash Archer is spawning a 12-track album, Cherlene, featuring original music, which will be released on all digital platforms on Monday, February 17. All are produced and most composed by Kevn Kinney, lead singer of Drivin N Cryin and feature vocals by Jessy Lynn Martens, with Kenny Loggins joining on Danger Zone. The new CD will feature three new songs original to Archer and previously unreleased, including It’s All About Me, I’ll Burn it Down and Gypsy Woman. Other songs include Chattahoochie Coochie Man, Midnight Blues, Straight to Hell, 40 Miles of Mountain Road, Swing Shift (formerly titled Coming Round Again), Cherlene’s Broken Hearts & Auto Parts (formerly titled Broken Hearts & Auto Parts), East Bound & Down, Baby Please Don’t Go, and Danger Zone.
The album will be highlighted by a duet with Cherlene and Loggins. Cherlene is the reimagined alter ego of Archer‘s Cheryl Tunt, also referred to as Carol Tunt. She and Loggins join forces in the previously-released song Danger Zone (also a favorite Sterling Archer catchphrase). A world premiere video of the tune will play in Episode 6 of Archer‘s fifth season the night of Feb. 17. Season 5 of the series launched on January 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, marking the show’s move to a new night.
Cherlene’s backstory: “She has long been known as both Cheryl and Carol, the loquacious secretary to Malory Archer (Jessica Walter). Wealthy, maniacal, not altogether well, she is renowned for becoming sexually aroused from being choked and enjoys sniffing and drinking rubber cement.”
The Archer album will be distributed across digital platforms including Apple iTunes, Amazon Digital Services Inc., eMusic, Google Music, MediaNet, Nokia, Rhapsody, SoundCloud, Spotify, Touchtunes, YouTube and many others.
Incidentally, Drivin N Cryin has just released Songs For The Turntable, the fourth and final EP in their series of indie Eps. Check it out!
