The posthumous project is a reimagining of Campbell’s 2011 album Ghost on the Canvas

AS THE TENTH anniversary of Glen Campbell’s Ghost on the Canvas was approaching, Dave Kaplan —whose Surfdog Records released the haunting album in 2011 — was pondering ways to honor it. A late-period landmark for Campbell, who died in 2017 after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease, Ghost on the Canvas found the venerable pop-country singer and guitarist covering songs by a new generation of writers — alt-rock types like Paul Westerberg, Guided By Voices’ Robert Pollard, Jakob Dylan, and Teddy Thompson. 

Partly a tribute to Campbell and partly to the album itself, Glen Campbell Duets — Ghost on the Canvas Sessions pairs Campbell with a head-spinning assortment of newly recorded duet partners, all on songs from the original album. The country crowd is represented by Eric Church (“Hold On Hope”) and Dolly Parton (“A Better Place”). Rock veterans pop up as partners on “Ghost on the Canvas” (with Sting), “There’s No Me … Without You” (with Carole King), “Strong” (with Brian Wilson), and “Nothing But the Whole Wide World” (with Eric Clapton). Elton John is heard on “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” which was first heard in the Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me doc from the same period.
