Emmylou Harris’s critically-acclaimed 1995 album Wrecking Ball is to be reissued as a three-disc set in April on the Nonesuch label.

Wrecking Ball was produced by Daniel Lanois who has worked with U2, Neil Young and Bob Dylan. The re-release will include a bonus CD of previously unreleased material, and a documentary DVD.

The album is to be reissued on Friday, April 4.

Wrecking Ball won the 1996 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album and was widely acclaimed as an innovative album and a shot in the arm for Harris.

The new three-disc set features the remastered original album, a bonus CD of previously unreleased material, and a DVD of the documentary, Building the Wrecking Ball, which includes interviews and studio footage of Harris and Lanois, as well as special guests Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Neil Young, Steve Earle, Brian Blade, and others.

Harris and Lanois will perform together at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, The Vic in Chicago, and the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C. this spring. European tour dates will soon be announced and a Dublin date could well be on the cards, given the popularity of both artists here.
