Listen to a new track from GLEN CAMPBELL DUETS - Ghost on the Canvas Sessions, the duets album that reimagines Campbell's critically acclaimed, history-making farewell album Ghost on the Canvas. “There's No Me Without You (With Carole King)” is available digitally now.

Penned by Campbell and one of the album's producers, Julian Raymond, the emotional ballad was written about the unbreakable bond Campbell shared with his wife, Kim, crediting her for completing him. The “really cool project” (Whiskey Riff )  which “feels both familiar and fresh at the same time” (Forbes) will be released April 19.

“Words cannot express how much I enjoyed blending my voice with Glen's on this incredibly touching love song. Hard to sing when you're crying,” said King.

King first met Campbell in New York in the early '60s when she, the Everly Brothers' Phil Everly and Campbell formed the short-lived novelty trio, the Keestone Family Singers, who released one single in 1962.

ABOUT GLEN CAMPBELL:

Legendary singer and guitarist Glen Campbell brought country music to the mainstream as the genre's first crossover star with hits like “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Wichita Lineman” and “Southern Nights.” In a legendary career that spanned more than six decades and more than 50 million records sold, Campbell created an indelible mark on American pop culture as a beloved musician, singer, movie star and television personality.

From his time as a groundbreaking guitarist for Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys and many others in the archetypical backing band The Wrecking Crew to his decades atop the charts to the grace he showed as he closed his career while fighting Alzheimer's disease, there are few artists who have touched as many lives as the Rhinestone Cowboy.
