Glen Campbell may have retired from the road permanently, but we’ll still get to hear a few new tunes from the country icon even though he’s gone. I’ll Be Me, a documentary following Campbell on his last tour following his diagnosis with advanced-stage Alzheimer’s disease, opens this fall, and before his admission into a treatment facility, Campbell recorded a new song for the film.
The I’ll Be Me soundtrack comes out on September 30th, and placed alongside the Campbell live tracks and covers is what will likely be Campbell’s last song. Titled “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” the Julian Raymond-penned song is a heartfelt coda to a long and storied career. Campbell’s wry wit is still preserved, as the title implies.
The soundtrack also features two live performances of Campbell classics “Wichita Lineman” and “A Better Place,” as well as a cover by The Band Perry (they do “Gentle On My Mind”) and a new song from Campbell’s daughter Ashley. The soundtrack will be available on all formats on September 30th.
I’ll Be Me premiers in New York on October 24th with a wide release to follow.
