Joe Walsh… “Analog Man”
[photogallerylink id=92948 align=right][mp3com-artist]Joe Walsh[/mp3com-artist] has finished working on ‘Analog Man,’ his next solo album due out winter of 2012.
JoeWalsh.com reveals the title track lyrics: “I’m an analog man in a digital world / I’m gonna get me an analog girl / Who loves me for what I am.”
Walsh explains, “I know in the past, I’ve had screwy album titles, but I decided to call it ‘Analog Man.’ Because, you know, my generation of musicians, we grew up analog, and now it’s a digital world. We had to learn it, you know? Everything’s totally different. There’s no record companies — who knew that would happen? They were so powerful when I was young!”
Walsh revealed, “This is my first real experience doing my music digitally. In the old days, there was more of a tendency to set up the band, mic everything, record the whole band together and when you got a good take, that was it. You couldn’t go in and make everything perfect. Nowadays, music is constructed. Musicians come in and play their part, and you put them on one at a time.”.
That is, assuming rehearsals go well: “We’re working it up now, it’s kind of complex. I’ve never played it live, so I’m learning it right along with the band. Just cause you can write ’em doesn’t mean you can play ’em!”
JoeWalsh.com also hints Walsh is incorporated Texas musicians into his new band and is busy planning for [mp3com-artist]the Eagles[/mp3com-artist]’ 40th anniversary in 2012.
