Yeah, I was more than a little blind sided when Cyndi Lauper announced that her latest effort would be a "Detour" into country music of all things. That being said, on the flip side of the so unusual announcement, as a fan who has seen her live and owns her previous output I went: "Yeah, she is going to nail it!"
Guess what?! She does! If you are a Cyndi or country fan, get yourself "Detour" and get it now!
Being a person who loves Patsy Cline I am particularly partial to Lauper's covers of Walkin' After Midnight & I Fall To Pieces.
Below is the track listing for "Detour" and Cyndi's tour dates.
Yep, she's a girl still having fun with a capital "F!"
Check out the video for Funnel Of Love after the jump!
