Uncle Kracker's album due out June 29

LOS ANGELES, June 11 (UPI) -- Uncle Kracker's "72 and Sunny" album, due out at the end of the month, features reconciliation songs from the Detroit rocker's recent brush with divorce.

The first single from the country-tinged pop-lite album, set for a June 29 release, is a reconciliation piece called "Rescue" written for Kracker by Diane Warren, Rolling Stone reported Friday.

"It was weird," Kracker says. "I had never met her and she said, 'This is for you. You have to cut this, because nobody else can.' She played it for me over the phone, and I was like, 'Wow!' But if I hadn't just come out of an almost-divorce I wouldn't have done the song, because it wouldn't have had anything to do with me."

Kracker himself wrote a couple tracks of his own, "Songs About Me, Songs About You" and "Don't Know How (Not To Love You)," also about nearly splitting up.

"I wrote those two dead smack in the middle of that situation, and even after I recorded them I changed them around because I didn't want to make anything worse. Sometimes the truth really does hurt, and I guess I'm not trying to rub anything in. I still gotta see some people."
