Country legend Loretta Lynn has announced a brand new record due out later this year.

Wouldn’t It Be Great will feature a mixture of new songs and rerecorded classics from Lynn, who turns 85 later this week.

Like her 2016 release Full Circle, the project was mostly recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn. Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash produced the album, which includes three brand new tracks, “Ruby’s Stool,” “Ain’t No Time To Go,” and “I’m Dying For Someone To Live For.”

Fans will also recognize new versions of favorites like “God Makes No Mistakes” from Van Lear Rose, along with her trademark songs “Don’t Come Home a Drinkin'” and “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”
