I am thrilled that Bob Weir will soon release a new solo album of original songs. The work is titled, ‘Blue Mountain‘ and will be available on September 30th.
Bob Weir is a hard-working musician. His collaborative musical abilities ring profoundly in the Music of Our Heart.
The release will be his first album of entirely original material in thirty years. Producer Josh Kaufman partnered with Weir on the album, which features songwriting collaboration with Josh Ritter and performances from guitarists Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner and bassist Scott Devendorf. The album features twelve new songs that draw on Weir’s earlier experiences working on a ranch in Wyoming as a teenager. Weir will be performing in support of the album this fall on his “Campfire Tour.”
There will be at least one song co-written with John Perry Barlow who has been instrumental in Bob Weir’s cannon of music.
