John Hiatt builds on the worldwide success of his last album Dirty Jeans & Mudslide Hymns that featured the Top 20 A3 single “Adios To California,” with his new album Mystic Pinball. Hiatt works again with producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley (Silverchair, Aerosmith, Joe Bonamassa), delivering a record that features Hiatt’s timeless songwriting. The first single is “We’re Alright Now.”
Produced by Kevin "Caveman" Shirley (Silverchair, Aerosmith, Joe Bonamassa), Hiatt's timeless songwriting is paired with the aggressive blues guitar. Hiatt is back in the studio with his touring combo (Kenny Blevins on drums, Patrick O'Hearn on bass and Doug Lancio on guitars). The first single is "Damn This Town."
Looking at life through the rearview mirror was the inspiration for John Hiatt's brand new album, The Open Road, due out March 2, 2010 via New West Records. The legendary songwriter's 19th studio album is classic Hiatt, picking up the tempo and returning to rock following his previous critically acclaimed Same Old Man. Backed by his touring band, (Kenny Blevins on drums, Patrick O'Hearn on bass and Doug Lancio on guitars), the songs are inspired by life on the road, without looking back. "All the other years, my songs are about coming home," Hiatt says. But within these 11 new songs, home is never the destination.
Hiatt has written songs covered by a multitude of artists in a wide variety of genres including Bob Dylan, Rosanne Cash, Willie Nelson, Jewel and Bonnie Raitt, who most famously recorded "Thing Called Love." On The Open Road he showcases both his lyrical and musical talent with his blues driven, rock songs including the title track and "Haulin'." Hiatt produced The Open Road himself after recording with his band in his garage-turned-studio.
