Tom Waits – new album


Tom Waits - Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & BastardsAs artists reach a great longevity in music, their latest releases are becoming more and more not only new works, but remakes of their old tracks or just new songs they found somewhere in the drawer.

Likewise, Tom Waits is to release a new album, a 3-CDs one with over 60 tracks, some of them being old songs which did not find a place on a record so far, others being songs from films and compilations. As the name of the album says it – “Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards” – they are songs which were never put together in a proper manner so far.

Still, this does not diminish the value of the set, which I am sure can be marked as a classic in Tom Waits’ discography of over 27 albums so far.

And, speaking of clasic Tom Waits works, here is one of them to download: Tom Waits – Jockey Full of Bourbon.
