Jackie Greene: New Album, US/Europe Tour Dates

NEW ALBUM IN THE WORKS;
LATE SUMMER/FALL DATES ANNOUNCED

Jackie Greene
Currently at work on his next album (release date TBA), Jackie Greene will premiere some of the most introspective, intimate music of his career. On the as-yet-untitled collection, to be culled from some 25 new original compositions, Greene will focus on themes of great personal significance, ranging from the loss of his father to his love of the Americana genre and his affection for the South. The first video from the forthcoming album, "Silver Lining," will soon be released in order to give fans a taste of what's to come.

As exciting as the lyrical focus of his new music is the fact that Greene plans to play every instrument on the album himself. "I've been demoing stuff at my house," he says about the ongoing process of crafting his next work. "I started recording by myself, it sounds so much better than some of my past stuff. When my singing was a little bit off on my past albums, I used to hate that. On the new songs, I'm playing as if it's a performance. Musically, some of it sounds like a J.J. Cale, Leon Russell or Little Feat album, those kinds of records -- the vibe is really natural on this new album. I'm finally OK with certain imperfections, as long as the song ends up feeling meaningful."

Jackie also plans to self-produce the recording. "Only because I did the last album this way," he says. "I have a really good sense of what the end result is gonna be and what I want it to be. Production begins and ends on my performance. I don't nerd out on what compressor to use or the best mic to use. It's about performance and getting it done. It's about getting the right take. I'm thinking about not making any edits, and I love to record direct to analog tape. On some of those old records, there are mistakes on it and it brings a real quality to it; that's what I'm looking for. The main quality I love in those old records is that they don't feel over-cooked, they feel like a moment in time - a moment in time that's timeless."

Jackie Greene will tour in the U.K., Belgium and The Netherlands in August and September, and in the U.S. from September through November 2012. His forthcoming tour dates are as follows:
