Ortega recorded Faded Gloryville in spurts, splitting the workload between three different producers. Dave Cobb, who’d sat behind the boards for Tin Star, recorded three songs at the Sound Emporium in Nashville, while Colin Linden, the producer of Ortega’s 2012 release, Cigarettes & Truckstops, recorded four. Rounding out the sessions were three songs tracked in Muscle Shoals, including a Nina Simone-inspired update of the Bee Gees classic “To Love Somebody.” “Faded Gloryville isn’t just about music,” she says. “It’s about anything that brings you down, whether it’s dreams not coming true or relationships not working out, and its message is this: you can go to place where you’re feeling really down about things, but it’s what you do afterwards — do you decide to reside there forever, or do you leave and make the situation better — that matters. You have to travel through Faded Gloryville to get to Paradise.”
