John Hiatt To Release First Album Since 2014

John Hiatt will release his next album ‘The Eclipse Sessions’ in October. It will be his first album since ‘Terms of My Surrender’ in 2014 and his 23rd studio album.

‘The Eclipse Sessions’ was recorded with Kevin McKendree and features his longtime band members Kenneth Blevins and Patrick O’Hearn.

Hiatt connects this record with 1987’s ‘Bring The Family’ and 2000’s ‘Crossing Muddy Waters’. “The three albums are very connected in my mind,” Hiatt says. “They all have a vibe to them that was unexpected. I didn’t know where I was going when I started out on any of them. And each one wound up being a pleasant surprise.”

The first taste of the album is ‘Cry To Me’.

John Hiatt released his first album ‘Hangin’ Around The Observatory’ in 1974.

Hiatt started thinking about ‘The Eclipse Sessions’ when he wrapped up touring in support of ‘Terms of My Surrender’. “I’ve been lost before,” Hiatt says. “Although usually I have some sort of notion or clue where to go. But this time? I had no sense whatsoever.

“I wanted to spend more time with my family. I was aging, with all that entails or doesn’t entail. Stuff was just happening.”

The first song he wrote for the record was ‘Robber’s Highway’. “I was just thinking in terms of somebody who’s out there hammerin’ away with his music, wondering what it’s all coming to. And maybe the songs just aren’t there anymore…,” he said.
