    Default Glenn Frey Working on New Solo Album!

    Some of you might remember that back in late 2007/early 2008, Glenn talked about doing an album of songs from his parent's generation while they're still around (see the original topic about this here). Well, we didn't hear about it again and we all assumed that it had been dropped.

    However, it turns out that he's been working on it all along and now it's about ready to release! It appears to have morphed into something that is not just big band / "my parent's generation" tunes, though. According to his announcement at the Fallsview Casino show (see my review), it's called After Hours and it might be coming out as early as Valentine's Day! He said he'd been working on it with his two keyboard players (I'm assuming he means Richard Davis and Michael Thompson). He played four tracks from it: Route 66, Caroline No, Shadow of Your Smile, and The Look of Love.

    Of course, seeing as how the title is going to be After Hours.... can we expect that jewel to finally see the light of day and be officially released? I sure hope so! I adore that song!!

    So exciting!

    With all the solo works coming out from everyone, Glenn couldn't be left out. So exciting and can't wait to get this one also.
    He sings it high, he plays it low

    I can't wait! I really enjoy Glenn's solo work.

    So in the next 12 months we can expect to see new albums from Glenn, both Dons (possibly two from Henley) and Joe. Sounds like a good year!

    Just thought it would be appropriate to add here the details from the album from my Second Night at Niagara Falls 2011 Review:

    Glenn said that night, "I hesitate to call [After Hours] a standards album, but itís an album that explores a lot of songs and singers that I loved from the 1920s to the early 1960s. Stuff like Dinah Washington, who is my favorite female singer of that era, and Nat King Cole, Burt Bacharach, stuff like that."

    I wonder what the unifying theme of the songs he chooses will be, if there is one?

    Just very briefly, how do you all think I reacted when he announced this?
