Tom Waits – “Bad As Me”

Tom Breihan | August 23, 2011 - 9:28 am

Tom Waits has a new album coming out, you guys! The O.G. scraggly-voiced dustbowl surrealist will drop Bad As Me 10/25 on Anti. And today, he released the title track, a characteristically unhinged caterwaul, as a single on iTunes.

Below, we’ve got a YouTube stream of the single, as well as the album’s tracklist. Also below, we’ve got a video of Tom Waits’s private listening session for the album, which is really just Waits playing a couple of tracks and then yelling at you for violating his privacy. And if you haven’t seen the video where the Cookie Monster sings a Waits song, you are not living your life to the fullest. That’s below, too.
