Of course I am beyond thrilled that Melissa is releasing a new album – with so many of the great new songs she’s been playing. It’s really nice of her to start the tour on my birthday September 10th. But just to clarify it’s not goodbye to my youth, as I am still younger then Madonna & Michael Jackson. Besides I shall forever remain hideously immature. But enough on that.
This arrived via her newsletter to my e-mail box…
“Goodbye Youth” Melissa’s ninth studio album hits the streets on September 16 (Right On Records). Laid down in a single day during her near-constant tour schedule, “Goodbye Youth” marks a departure from the music she wrote and arranged with a team of accomplished musicians on her previous effort. It is perhaps her most intimate, stripped-down album to date. Melissa channeled her rock spirit into a fresh acoustic idiom with the assistance of engineer Scott Norton.”
Goodbye Youth is available at iTunes September 16, 2008
and on her tour that starts at the Bowery Ballroom in New York on September 10, 2008.
Ms. Melissa Ferrick will be in MICHIGAN playing two engagements…
And I’ll see you there! I have not been to the Intersection yet but The Ark is just a terrific place to see a concert and Ann Arbor is uberCool and fun.
She has some cuts of her new songs up on her My Space page – go give Hypocrite & John’s Field a listen. You can also catch her fall tour schedule there.
