I received a notification on Facebook that the Eric Burdon Team was holding a giveaway contest via Eric’s FanBridge network. So I got the hookup and now keep my fingers crossed for one of the CD’s Team Eric is giving away this week.
I had been wondering what Eric Burdon was up to lately, so I plugged back in to Eric Burdon’s Web site for the latest news and information. I was informed that Eric Burdon had undergone back surgery in late July and was on the mend As a matter of fact, his doctor discourages him to travel so he performed right up the street this past weekend ;).
Eric Burdon will be releasing his new full recording ‘Til Your River Runs Dry on ABCKO the first quarter of 2013.
Here are Eric Burdon’s thoughts on the forthcoming album: “I started feeling that I needed to use this album as a catharsis, to express my own truth. It took longer than any other album, not because of time spent in the studio, but because of the subject matter of the songs I wanted to put out there,” says Burdon about the album’s lengthy gestation period. “The result is a deeply intimate, honest self-portrait as well as unsparing look at religion, politics and the environment.”
‘Til Your River Runs Dry features original tracks written by Burdon including “Bo Diddley Special,” “The River Is Rising,” “Water,” “Wait” and and the aforementioned “Memorial Day.” The album was recorded in New Orleans and California in 2010 and 2011.
