Bob Seger will return from an eight-year recording hiatus on October 14th with the release of his new LP Ride Out. The album’s first single, a cover of John Hiatt’s “Detroit Made,” was released to radio over the weekend. No track listing has been announced, but a press release indicates it will also contain a cover of Wilco and Billy Bragg’s “California Stars” and “All The Roads,” an original song Seger debuted on tour in 2013. “I feel really good about this record,” Seger said in a statement. “This album touches on how I think a lot of us feel about finding our place in a more complicated world – from how we appreciate things as simple and pure as love, to navigating through the corruption and violence that permeates the news. It sums up a lot of feelings I have about a variety of subjects.” Seger largely disappeared from public view after wrapping up a tour in support of his 1995 LP It’s A … [Read more...] about Turn the Page: Bob Seger to Release First Album in Eight Years This Fall

We have incredible, incredible stuff. Hopefully it’ll all come out next year.” There has been talk for years about a Blood on the Tracks box set that would include unheard solo acoustic demos from the first day of sessions with producer Phil Ramone, but that might get folded into the Rolling Thunder collection. “It’s just a two-year period of … [Read more...] about What’s Next for Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series?

Martha Wash was sitting in a Los Angeles hotel room, furious and confused. It was late 1990 and the singer, relaxing before a show that night, had decided to unwind with some channel surfing. She stumbled upon a new music video by Italian house group Black Box, whose synth lines, horn stabs and pulsating, club-tailored drum patterns had already made them dance music stars. When the song’s vocals kicked in, she was shocked to see French model Katrin Quinol, the ex-girlfriend of founding member Daniele Davoli, bending over and crouching in a unitard, lip-syncing Wash’s vocals to the eventual hit “Everybody Everybody.” “I said to myself, ‘I don’t believe this shit is happening again,” says the now 60-year-old Wash. “I called my manager and said, ‘I just heard myself on TV in a video.'” “Again” is the operative word, as just a few months prior, Wash heard her ostensible … [Read more...] about Martha Wash: The Most Famous Unknown Singer of the ’90s Speaks Out
