T Bone’s first album in 20 years, The Other Side is out !  

 

T Bone Burnett delves deeply into the myriad genres of American Music, returning to his roots as a singer and songwriter. The love story at the center of the 12-song collection follows the journey of a couple that may no longer be of this plane. Co-produced by Colin Linden, Mike Piersante and Burnett, the album features longtime friends Rosanne Cash and early bandmate Steven Soles, new collaborators Lucius and Weyes Blood, and trusted musical companions including Dennis Crouch, Stuart Duncan, Jay Bellerose, and Rory Hoffman.

A deeply personal work, The Other Side features some of the richest vocals and most direct songs of the artist’s long career.  Listen and buy here.

Meeting T Bone Burnett through artist Sam Phillips – who was the opening act for Bruce Cockburn, with whom Linden was playing – was a life-altering event, leading him to gigs with the Coen brothers and the Nashville TV series. 

“I couldn’t ever have had a better mentor as a record producer and music maker,” says Linden about his longtime friend.

On June 30th Colin will provide accompaniment for  T Bone Burnett  in a special performance at the Bob Dylan Centre in Tulsa Oklahoma
