“Release Me,” Lovett’s 11th studio album and the last for his 27-year-old recording contract with Curb/Universal Music Group (hence the record’s cheeky title). A mixture of originals and covers, the record provides a concise snapshot of Lovett’s career: The covers reflect his eclectic tastes, and the new originals are as witty and wry as he’s always been. Lovett performs with his Acoustic Group at the Wilbur Theatre on Sunday.
