I suspect I won’t be the only one excited to hear that T-Bone Burnett’s new album has a release date. It’ll be the first new album from T-Bone since 1992, and is due in August on DMZ (a Sony imprint). According to the story, there’ll also be a 2-CD career retrospective released around the same time.
“It is very primal,” Burnett says of his liberating new work. “It’s emancipation. Everyone who works in the record business is a victim of Stockholm syndrome, and I’ve finally been deprogramed. … We’re doing this to supply some liberty in the horrible environment we’re living in.”
I know what I’ll be listening to on the way to Greenbelt!
