Ashes and Roses, the new album from acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter, will be released June 12 on Zoe/Rounder Records. This is Carpenters twelfth studio album and features a special duet with James Taylor on the track Soul Companion.

Recorded in Nashville, Ashes and Roses was produced by Carpenter and long-time collaborator Matt Rollings (Lyle Lovett, Keith Urban) and recorded and mixed by Chuck Ainlay (Mark Knopfler, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson). Carpenter was backed by a band that included Rollings (piano, B-3 organ), Russ Kunkel (drums), Duke Levine (electric and acoustic guitar) and Glenn Worf (bass).

Of making the record, Carpenter notes, 'I was so fortunate to work again with these seminal musicians. Our history of making records together serves us in the most wonderful ways. Getting back into the studio this time felt as exciting as the very first opportunity we had to gather together.'
