John Waite To Release “Rough & Tumble” On February 22nd

Filed under Daily Music News

John Waite has announced the details of his upcoming release Rough & Tumble on February 22, 2010.

Best known for his work in the ’70s with The Babys, his solo music in the ’80s and then as the frontman for Bad English in the early ’90s it’s great to see him still rocking!

The album shows a new and fresh side of the British singer/songwriter’s creative output. Recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles, Waite considers Rough & Tumble a new beginning for him. “I approached this project with an entirely different ambition musically than I’ve had in the past,” Waite commented. “It’s the first record I’ve made that I think is made up of singles.  All 12 tracks are contenders.  They’re all alive in their own way.  I’m not really sure what the energy is behind the songs, but there is a real kind of velocity in the album where we just picked up speed and kept going.  We just wanted to play and win.

A lot of Rough & Tumble was written and produced as a collaborative effort with Matchbox Twenty lead guitarist/songwriter Kyle Cook, who Waite met through a mutual friend. “It’s pretty much extraordinary,” Waite says about the material he created for the new album. “It’s not like what people would expect from me. It’s a step to the left. There’s a rock imprint on the music and a melodic presence, but it’s just shifted gears. It’s an extreme record.  It has an identity and a philosophy of its own, which is really fresh for me.”

Sounds good to us!  Looking forward to it!
