Robbie Robertson – “When The Night Was Young”

This April Robbie Robertson’s releasing his fifth solo album, How To Become Clairvoyant, his first in 10+ years. Outside his six strings, the collection includes guitar contributions from Eric Clapton (who co-wrote three tracks), Tom Morello, and Robert Randolph. Steve Winwood, Trent Reznor, Angela McCluskey, and a bunch of other folks also appear. We’re told the lyrics involve a look back at “his rock heritage.” Hear the exceedingly mellow, nostalgic first single “When The Night Was Young,” a song about leaving the Band, at 429 Records (via PR Newswire). Here’s the tracklist if you want to dig deeper:

01 “Straight Down The Line”
02 “When The Night Was Young”
03 “He Don’t Live Here No More”
04 “The Right Mistake”
05 “This Is Where I Get Off”
06 “Fear of Falling”
07 “She’s Not Mine”
08 “Madame X”
09 “Axman”
10 “Won’t Be Back”
11 “How To Become Clairvoyant”
12 “Tango For Django”

How To Become Clairvoyant is out 4/5 via 429 Records.
