"It's not your mother's Glen Campbell," producer Julian Raymond told Billboard. "He's playing guitar better than ever, singing and writing better than ever. It's really going to be a great final statement from him." 'Ghost on the Canvas' is the follow-up to Campbell's 2008 covers disc, 'Meet Glen Campbell,' which featured his taken on tunes by Green Day, the Replacements, U2, the Foo Fighters and the Velvet Underground.
Raymond, who produced that disc, says the covers project was "the best way to get him a new audience, and it did." Now, Campbell -- who is also famous for his 1968 rendering of Jimmy Webb's classic 'Wichita Lineman' -- has also gotten studio assistance from members of the Dandy Warhols, former Prince sidewoman Wendy Melvoin and studio drummer Josh Freese. According to Raymond, there was "an unbelievable amount of people" interested in helping Campbell.
