Graham Nash lines up new album for release

Can it truly be seven years since the release of ‘This Path Tonight‘, Graham Nash’s last solo studio album?  It would appear so – and whilst the intervening years have been studded with a compilation including a whole album’s worth of demos and a live recording of ‘Songs For Beginners‘ and ‘Wild Tales‘ it is none the less a momentous occasion to hear that a new album ‘Now‘ will be arriving on May 19th released by BMG.  It comes with a typically bold statement from Nash: “I believe that my new album ‘Now’ is the most personal one I have ever made. At this point in my life, that’s something to say.”  It is indeed, because over the years Graham Nash has certainly laid his life out for view, particularly on his solo recordings.

The album features 13 songs including the first track ‘Right Now‘ which can heard here.  It’s a strongly autobiographical song from line one: “I used to think that I would never love again / I used to think that I would be all on my own.”  It burns with an intensity that will make many recall the glories of Crosby-Nash in particular, this could have fallen off ‘Wind on the Water‘ or maybe even more so ‘Graham Nash, David Crosby‘ – it’s passionate and full of life and lays out a path to a future where Nash can “try my best to be the man I know I am.”  Graham Nash clearly still has it – the voice and the song writing chops.

The album listing is:

1. Right Now
2. A Better Life
3. Golden Idol
4. Stars And Stripes
5. Love Of Mine
6. Theme From Pastorale
7. In A Dream
8. Stand Up
9. Feels Like Home
10. Buddy’s Back
11. Follow Your Heart
12. I Watched It All Come Down
13. When It Comes To You

Other exciting news is that Graham Nash will be setting out on tour in April for a long stretch into July.  Exciting, if you happen to be in the USA.  The UK dates are strangely absent.  No UK dates yet.  Graham, you seem to have forgotten the UK dates.  Fingers-crossed, eh?

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
