Celebrated archival label Light in the Attic (LITA) continues to celebrate the influential career of singer, actress, activist, and icon Nancy Sinatra with a captivating new collection Keep Walkin’: Singles, Demos & Rarities 1965-1978. Released digitally on September 29th and due out this Friday (10/20) in 2-LP, CD, and 8-track formats, Keep Walkin’ explores the lesser-known gems from Sinatra’s rich catalog through 25 B-sides, rare singles, covers, demos, and previously unreleased recordings.
In celebration of the release, LITA is hosting a live streaming event on Nancy’s YouTube channel this Friday (10/20) beginning at 2:00 pm PT, which will feature Keep Walkin’ being played in its entirety and a chat between Nancy and the release’s GRAMMY®-nominated co-producer Hunter Lea.
Plus, Nancy is confirmed to do two in-stores this week, including tomorrow (10/17) at Amoeba Hollywood (6200 Hollywood Blvd) beginning at 5:00 pm, where she’ll be doing a special album signing of the 2-LP edition of Keep Walkin’; followed by an appearance this Saturday (10/21) from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm at The Shag Store (745 N Palm Canyon Drive) in Palm Springs, where she’ll be signing copies of her new book Nancy Sinatra: One For Your Dreams. Both events are free to attend and open to the public.
Remastered by GRAMMY®-nominated engineer John Baldwin and pressed at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI), the 2-LP set of Keep Walkin’ is presented in an expanded gatefold jacket and accompanied by a 24-page booklet (also included in the CD edition as a 40-page booklet), featuring an array of photos from the artist’s personal collection, as well as a new in-depth Q&A with Sinatra, conducted by Hunter Lea. The booklet also contains a fascinating interview with keyboardist Don Randi (The Wrecking Crew), who recently spoke to Lea about his hit-filled career and his 50 years of work with Nancy. In addition to the classic black vinyl pressing, a selection of colorful variants can be found exclusively at NancySinatra.com, LightInTheAttic.net, independent record stores, and select online retailers, while limited-edition merchandise (including apparel, accessories, and more) is also available at Nancy’s Bootique at NancySinatra.com.
Keep Walkin’: Singles, Demos & Rarities 1965-1978 serves as a companion to the widely acclaimed 2021 career-spanning retrospective Start Walkin’ 1965-1976 and marks the latest release from LITA’s ongoing Nancy Sinatra Archival Series, a partnership with the legendary artist that launched in October 2020, honoring her musical legacy through lovingly curated reissues (including her 1966 debut Boots, 1968 classic Nancy & Lee, and 1972’s Nancy & Lee Again), limited-edition merch, and other special releases.
