    Default Don’s “Charmed” CD set for Sept/Oct release

    In this radio interview from May 31, Don announces his new cd “Charmed” is set for release at the end of September or beginning of October. He just finished the last song this past week. He also touches on other subjects (some he has discussed in the past) such as

    • writing the music for HC and recording the demo on tape, now digitized
    • coming up with a new intro for HC at Henley’s request during HFO taping
    • HC is the only song he knows of to receive a RIAA certification for getting a Grammy nomination twice (same song, same band, different version)
    • writing his book - he was shocked when he was asked to write it b/c he failed 9th grade English and then it went on to become a NYT bestseller
    • why it’s necessary to play a double-neck guitar when performing HC live
    • performing in Montreal on June 3 in support of the Israel Cancer Research Fund

    I’ll try to post more info but I don’t think Don has said much about it.

    (Cool about what google turned up!)

    Bringing this over from the press thread for some context.

    “I’m writing in a lot of different areas, and I’m including a lot of other artists that are gonna be working with me on it,” he reports. “At this point, I don’t want to name drop until I have everything finished and sweetened up.”

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who turns 70 in September, also reveals that he’s considering issuing the new material in an interesting way.

    “I may record 18, 20 songs, and I’m gonna put out an EP of probably five or six songs, and then…another EP out of that batch,” Felder explains, “then, eventually, [I’ll release] a combination of those two [as] one CD.”

    *******

    He said the new album, like his last one, would be full of guest appearances, revealing that, among others, Sammy Hagar had contributed vocals, and that guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani joined him on a track that recalls the famed outro riff of “Hotel California,” though he was quick to clarify that it’s “not quite exactly like that, ’cause Satch doesn’t play like Joe [Walsh], and I don’t try to repeat myself by playing the same things I did 40 years ago.”
    “Don Felder bringing ‘Hotel California’ to Utah on Friday night” by Eric Walden, The Salt Lake Tribune, Nov. 9, 2017

    *********

    This is what Don says in the iHeart radio interview about the new CD:

    “I’m just finishing this week the last song that’s gonna be on my new CD which will be out either at the end of September or early October and it’s called “Charmed.” It’s about all the stuff that goes along with the excitement and thrill of having that kind of creative spontaneous excitement. But then when all of that kind of gets to be about the music business and about the trappings of cars and planes and jets and houses and money...all of that stuff loses its “charm”; there’s not the excitement and thrill of the music.”

    It was very early in the a.m. when he gave the phone interview in California with the DJ in Canada.
