Published by:

Singer shares her rendition of “Wayfaring Stranger,” talks upcoming album, and looks back on her career — from touring with Peter Gabriel to “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” fame

When Paula Cole released her 2016 album, Ballads, a double LP of folk and jazz standards, she felt her work was incomplete. “It didn’t sit right,” the singer-songwriter tells Rolling Stone over the phone from her home in Massachusetts. “I needed it to be more of a diverse patchwork, incorporating my roots as a typical American and also as a daughter of a professional musician. I’ve been in this melting pot of music since I was a little girl, and I needed the album to reflect that diversity.”

AWESOME ADVENTURES IN SLOVENIA

Slovenia is a country full of outdoor adventures, historic cities, and adorable villages. At only 7,827 square miles in size (roughly the same size as Massachusetts), Slovenia is a small country. But just because its small, it doesn't mean that there is nothing to do. Slovenia is home to a diverse range of landscapes and the perfect place for a road trip. You can find craggy mountains in the Julian Alps, turquoise rivers and lakes, towering waterfalls, forests, rolling hills, farmland, vineyards, deep caves, and even a bit of coastline along the Adriatic Sea. There are so many adventures in Slovenia to pick from that we had a hard time narrowing down our options! During our summer visit, we spent two weeks road tripping around Slovenia.
