Following the news that she is releasing her triple album, Revived Remixed Revisited, country legend Reba McEntire is now opening up about what pushed her into wanting to release the compilation.
During a recent interview with Variety, Reba McEntire shared more details about the concept of the album. “I’ve been continuing to make new albums, and we really haven’t spent the time to slow down enough to resist and work the catalog,” the country singer proclaims. She also says that she wants to remind her fans of what she and her crew have done over the years.
“I’m really a forward thinker, so that was a little out of my realm,” Reba McEntire states. She then admits that it was UMG Nashville’s President, Cindy Mabe, who came up with the concept of Revived Remixed Revisited. “I was thrilled that they wanted to spend that much time and attention on my catalog.”
Reba McEntire then reflects on the album’s progress and what she and her team thought about naming it. “With it turning out to be three different albums, we started talking about what are we going to call this? ‘Reba Does It Again’ or ‘Reba Sings ‘Em Again’? And this title was very clever, I thought.”
As previously reported, Reba McEntire took to her Instagram account on Thursday to share a few of the hits that would be featured in the upcoming album. The songs are I’m a Survivor, Consider Me Gone, and Is There Life Out There? Other media outlets predict that You Keep Me Hangin’ On and Fancy are also on the album. The album is will hit stores on October 8th. Reba’s fans may also now pre-order the album as well.
