Press releases are abound this morning, as Tom Waits has announced the 10/25 (now that’s a birthday present for me!) release of a new record Bad As Me on Anti (reported by Stereogum & Pitchfork). You can head over to Tom Waits website for more information about this American Legend, and for a pretty good laugh click on the Stereogum site for a Cookie Monster/Tom Waits mashup video… it’ll make you smile today. The only thing that would make me smile more would be the announcement of a tour for this new record!
Here is a youtube link to Tom’s “private listening” party.
….. and here is a link to listen to the full “Bad As Me” track…..
