Joey Molland of Badfinger To Release

Joey Molland, one of two of the surviving members of Badfinger, has a new album coming.

The surviving members of Badfinger have had a bit of a career resurgence this year with the high profile placing of their 70’s classic Baby Blue in the final episode of Breaking Bad. Now guitarist Joey Molland is preparing to release his new album Return to Memphis, his first new solo project in twelve years.

The album was recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis and was produced by Stax Records veteran Carl “Blue” Wise who has worked with artists from Eddie Floyd and Rufus Thomas to Bruce Springsteen.

Molland said of the album “I did the record in Memphis and so it’s called Return to Memphis. I started out loving Memphis music … Elvis and all that. A lot of great rockers came from there. So I opted to go down there and make a record and it was a great experience.

“I wrote all the songs myself and they’re quite meaningful, I’d have to say, for me anyway, you know everybody gets what they get out of songs themselves. But I think the songs talk about things that are relevant and I look forward to people’s reactions to it. The sound is very different … there’s no real Badfinger power chords or anything like that. No real jamming guitars … I do play some slide on it. I had four girls come in to sing ‘oohs and aahs’ and harmonies which was nice, and I played with a lot of three piece rhythm sections down in Memphis. So it’s a really simple sounding record and I’m just hoping that people will like it.”

Track List:
Walk Out In The Rain
A Love Song
A Ship To Mars
Frank And M
Gotta Feeling
Is It Any Wonder
All I Need Is Love
All I Ever Dreamed
Still I Love You
