Loudon Wainwright III :: Haven’t Got The Blues (Yet)


LW3-coverHaven’t Got The Blues (Yet) is de 26ste plaat van Loudon Wainwright III en geloof het of niet: de bijna 70-jarige singer/songwriter is in topvorm. Grappig, bitter, actueel, politiek, persoonlijk en avontuurlijk. Blues, klezmer, rock ‘n’ roll, folk. Het komt allemaal samen in de bijzondere wereld die Wainwright heeft geschapen. Tussen alle hoogtepunten in staat I’ll Be Killing You This Christmas, een kerstklassieker in de dop.

Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet) or HGTB(Y), for short, is the 26th album in the long and illustrious career of Loudon Wainwright III. It follows his acclaimed Older Than My Old Man Now album from 2012—“my death n’ decay opus,” as Wainwright calls it. Due for release on the 28th July, the new album sees Loudon broadening his scope with a 14-song, genre-bounding set (“eclectricity,” he calls it) dealing with varied subject matter including depression, drinking, senior citizenship, gun control, heartbreak, pet ownership and New York City’s arcane practice of alternate side-of-the-street parking.
