New Songs Written For Next Album
end of January, Lightfoot has 30 new songs ready for consideration for
his next studio album. In what is one of his most prolific periods of
in at least 15 years since preparing for the East Of Midnight album,
will go into this new project with an overabundance of songs to
from. Perhaps this will lead to an album containing more than the
10 songs Lightfoot has allotted to the majority of his albums and take
advantage of the potential 75 minutes or more available on a CD
If not, I'd expect the 10 "keepers" to be of exceptional caliber with
many songs in contention.
At any rate,
with rehearsals for the upcoming tour not yet begun as of the end of
there will be a lot of new material for the band to work up for
inclusion in the upcoming concert year and/or later recording.
All in all,
it's very promising news for the 2002 tour dates and eventual new album!
