VIDEO: Joe Walsh To Release First Album In 18 Years

In 2011 you will have a new Joe Walsh album, his first in 18 years. The yet-to-be named album will be Joe’s first since ‘Songs for a Dying Planet’ from 1992.

Joe has been working on the new record with Jeff Lynne producing at least half of the songs. He has done the rest.

“I’ve been working on it for a long time during the Eagles downtime,” Joe tells “I’ve got new stuff after about 18 years that I haven’t done an album. I really like it. It’s Rock and Roll and its new songs.  Hopefully it will get out April/May.”

Joe can easily explain the gap between records. “I finally got sober in 1994 and I had to learn actually to write and play and do everything sober,” he says. “I just didn’t write for quite a while. Also the Eagles have really been busy. During downtime I can work on doing an album and I just decided that however long it took would be okay. Its nice to do one because I want to and not because I have to and I’m really happy with it”.

Joe Walsh has had some of the best album titles ever. ‘You Bought It, You Name It’, ‘The Smoker You Are The Player You Get’ and ‘You Can’t Argue With A Sick Mind’ are just some of his gems. So what will the new one be called? “I got a couple of them. I wish I had some funny ones for you so I guess I don’t have a title,” he says. “I went to this Whole Foods Market and the bags that they put the food in, it’s all recycled. On the side of the bag it says, “I used to be a plastic bottle”. And I thought that's a brilliant title. This may be a green album titled “I Used To Be A Plastic Bottle”.

Although the Eagles released ‘Long Road Out Of Eden’ in 2007, Joe only co-wrote the one song ‘Last Good Time In Town’ and sang lead vocal of ‘Guilty of the Crime’ on it. He also wrote ‘One Day Out A Time’, the song he performed live on the Farewell 1 tour in 2004. It is only available in live form on the ‘Farewell 1’ DVD.
