Glenn Frey says the title track from his new solo album ‘After Hours’ was written 30 years ago.
‘After Hours’ is the sole original track and title track of his new album of standards.
In an interview with Marco Gandolfi of music-news.com, Glenn said, “the song ‘After Hours’ was written for The Allnighter album. It was supposed to be the last song on an album that I did almost 30 years ago. I called my friend Jack Tempchin. I said “do you want to come up to LA and try and make a standard? I am making this record and I’ve cut these songs”. He said “Glenn, I think we already did. Don’t you remember After Hours”. So we dug that up and I played it for the guys and that’s how it got on”.
‘After Hours’ features Glenn covering songs by the Beach Boys, Burt Bacharach and Randy Newman. He says he will most likely make another record just like it. “If I make another record like After Hours, and I think I probably will because there are some songs that I didn’t get to sing that I’d like to have a shot at, I am going to try and write a few more songs in this style that are compatible,” he said.
