Tom Waits writing songs for next album

Mentioned in a press release from his label, ANTI-:

As for new material, Waits and his long time collaborator and wife, Kathleen Brennan, have begun writing new songs, which they plan to record this summer for an upcoming CD. (No release date at this time.)
So happy ... hopefully it'll come out this year.

Always good news. I thought Orphans was up and down, but Real Gone, Alice, and Bloody Money were all awesome.

I agree with this although I did enjoy the majority of Orphans. Would have made a helluva double album. We should have a thread about album length...

Make that Blood Money, not Bloody Money.

In fairness though, Orphans was just that..."orphan" tracks, unreleased material pulled together from the last 15 or so years, so it would be expected that it would be uneven, as opposed to a single studio release.

Fantastic! Just got my brother into Waits and this is awesome news!

Now if he would only tour somewhere near me, I would be a happy camper.

Excellent. Hopefully the summer recording will be followed by a spring tour.
