#333: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! After much anticipation, Tuesday 5th June [US] and Monday 11th June [UK] will see the long awaited release of the new Joe Walsh studio album "Analog Man", his first release of new material in over twenty years.
Very significant to fans of ELO is the fact that about half of the album will be produced by Jeff Lynne, his first significant production output since the release of Regina Spektor's 2009 album "Far" [see our review here] and the precursor to the much anticipated [and to be confirmed] follow-up to his 1990 debut solo album "Armchair Theatre", likely to also be twinned with Jeff's solo reinterpretations of "ELO's Greatest Hits".
Have a listen to the title track here and download it for just $0.99 from iTunes. "Analog Man" can presently be pre-ordered from amazon.com or amazon.co.ukin either CD, CD/DVD Deluxe edition, vinyl and/or digital formats via these links thus:
