John Hiatt: New Album, Summer/Fall Tour


Acclaimed musician and songwriter John Hiatt will release Mystic Pinball on September 25 via New West Records. Hiatt continues to write brilliant character studies, twisting entertaining storylines with cunning lyrics and wry humor including "We're Alright Now," the first single from Mystic Pinball. The blues driven "We're Alright Now" is available to hear at Mystic Pinball will be available as both a CD and on limited edition 180-gram vinyl.

Hiatt & his band begin a US run mid-August that includes dates with Steve Earle, a special appearance at the Americana Festival in Nashville and two shows at City Winery in NYC (full list of dates below.)

For Mystic Pinball, Hiatt's 21st studio album, Hiatt turned to producer Kevin “Caveman”Shirley (Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa.) Hiatt relies on the exceptional musical skills of Doug Lancio (electric guitar, mandolin, Dobro), Kenneth Blevins (drums and percussion) and Patrick O'Hearn (bass) to play with him on the record.
