Jesse Malin's new album to feature Springsteen, Ryan Adams & a Replacements cover

From today's news:

Boss and More Guest on Jesse Malin CD
09/13/06

"Jesse Malin has just finished recording his third record titled Glitter In The Gutter, to be released in early 2007 on Adeline Records/East West. This album follows his two previous critically acclaimed releases: 2004's The Heat, and 2002's The Fine Art of Self Destruction. Glitter In The Gutter was recorded in various studios over the summer in Millbrook, New York; North Hollywood, CA; and in Jesse's native borough of Queens, New York.

Guests on the album include a special vocal performance by Bruce Springsteen, Chris Shifflett of the Foo Fighters, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, long time pal Ryan Adams as well as members of Jesse's own touring and recording band "The Heat." Many of the songs on the new album were written on electric guitar in Jesse's basement rehearsal studio in New York City over the past year.

After working up demos of the songs, Jesse chose to work with producers Rob Caggiano and Eddie Wohl of Scrap 60. The album will include an intimate acoustic version of The Replacements' classic 'Bastards of Young.' CD will hit stores in early 2007."


I love that title, Glitter in the Gutter. Can't wait to hear it. He's got a handful of shows coming up, mostly East Coast. Tomorrow night (9/13) he headlines one final show at The Continental in NYC, on 9/19 at the Barnes & Noble (!!) in Union Square, 10/1 in Ringwood NJ, 10/12 at the Tin Angel in Philly, 10/14 at the Club Cafe in Pittsburgh, and 10/18 at Schuba's in Chicago.


Here's the original 'Mats track that he covers on the new album, if you don't have it:

Bastards of Young - The Replacements

And I wrote about some demos from the new album (the fabulous "Black Haired Girl" and "Don't Let 'Em Take You Down") in this post.

Am I the only one who finds a Boss/Jesse Malin partnership weird for some reason? Nothing against either of them, it just strikes me as an odd combo. Still looking forward to this album, though. Thanks for the heads up.

I do not think that such a partnership would be odd at all Matt. In the past, Jesse has made it clear that he is passionate about Springsteen's body of work. The natural progression is to seek out one's mentors and influences and to,hopefully, one day measure up. I personally do not care who he pairs up with - I am a huge Jesse fan. If you don't own "The Heat" album you are missing out. I am sure his next will be just as good - maybe better.

I am not sure who looks more screwed up in your photo. It looks as though both of these fine artist could take a bullet and still sing in key.
