Todd Snider: New Album

TODD SNIDER SOLVES YOUR ECONOMIC WOES WITH THE EXCITEMENT PLAN
NEW ALBUM PRODUCED BY DON WAS, OUT JUNE 9 ON YEP ROC

Todd Snider
He's taken on Conservative Christians, hippies, Republicans, and frat boys. Now "country's conscience" (Spin, August 2006) and "top wiseass" (Blender, August 2006) Todd Snider shows us how to get through this economic crisis with The Excitement Plan (out June 9 on Yep Roc). The album features GRAMMY-winning producer Don Was and a guest appearance by Loretta Lynn.

The Excitement Plan is "an old gypsy term" Snider adopted from his father. He explains, "I know right now that times are hard for all of us and that new songs from a folk singer are not at the top of so many grocery lists but these twelve songs are different. These twelve songs can be part of your solution. Just give them a chance. Take them in. Use 'em to help you appreciate your girl if you still got one, and/or your job if you still got one. Trust them, trust me and I promise you as god is my witness sometime here in the next sixty to ninety days we will be layin' 'em in the sweet peas."

THE EXCITEMENT PLAN TRACK LIST:
1. SLIM CHANCE
2. GREENCASTLE BLUES
3. AMERICA'S FAVORITE PASTIME
4. DOLL FACE
5. BRING 'EM HOME
6. CORPUS CHRISTI BAY [by Robert Earl Keen]
7. THE LAST LAUGH
8. UNORGANIZED CRIME
9. BAREFOOT CHAMPAGNE
10. DON'T TEMPT ME featuring Loretta Lynn
11. MONEY, COMPLIMENTS, PUBLICITY (SONG NUMBER TEN)
12. GOOD FORTUNE

Snider will tour throughout the spring with highlights including June 11 at NYC's Bowery Ballroom (tickets on sale now), and his first performance at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival June 14.

Todd Snider is a renegade storyteller who crafts songs about the everyday man and truthful observations of society with trademark wit. His last full-length album 2006's The Devil You Know landed in numerous year-end top 10 critics lists, as well as his first career appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
