Singer/songwriter Edwin McCain will on June 19 release his fourth Lava/Atlantic album, "Far From Over." McCain, who has gained a reputation as a hard-working touring act by performing more than 300 dates a year with his band, will tease the new set with the single "Hearts Fall," an acoustic tune featuring harmony vocals from Shawn Colvin.

McCain has also added guitarist Pete Riley to his touring band. The now six-piece outfit will hit the road for six weeks of dates leading up to the release of "Far From Over" and will close the jaunt with a performance at Atlanta's Chastain Amphitheater backed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

"Far From Over" was recorded at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studios near Austin, Texas. The album features vocal contributions from Colvin and singers Jacqueline Johnson (Lenny Kravitz, Luther Allison) and Jacquelyn M. Reddick (Pops Staples, the Memphis Horns).

McCain's 1999 set "Messenger" peaked at No. 59 on The Billboard 200 albums chart. He is perhaps best known for the single "I'll Be," from 1997's "Misguided Roses" album, which hit No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
