Earlier today, Tom Waits announced the release of his forthcoming album Bad As Me over at his website. The album will be released October 25th. The first single, also called “Bad As Me,” is streaming free and available to download on iTunes. “Bad as Me” features the same junkyard swagger of other Waits classics such as “Big in Japan” or “Jockey Full of Bourbon.” Waits’ website states that the new album “displays the full career range of Waits’ songwriting” which sounds promising.
The announcement also came with the following video which features clips of other tracks from the album as well as Tom Waits being Tom Waits. I must say, I like the sound of the various song segments featured in this video. Super excited!
