JOE JACKSON PREMIERES NEW SONG “FRIEND BETTER” TODAY.
AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD AND STREAM NOW.
Leading up to the release of Joe Jackson’s new studio album “Fool” on January 18th, the Grammy winning artist premieres his brand new song “Friend Better” today.
A straight forward toast to friendship, “Friend Better” builds on the assumption that whereas love is fleeting, friendship endures.
“Fool”, the 20th studio album celebrating the artist’s 40th anniversary, is going to be released as CD Digipak, 1LP+download, Limited 1LP+7inch Vinyl+download (incl. 2 previously unreleased songs) and Digital on January 18th, 2019 on earMUSIC.
The album was co-produced by Jackson and producer Pat Dillett (David Byrne, Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard, etc.) The band in question was the same group that Jackson has played live with ever since the release of “Fast Forward”: Teddy Kumpel on guitar, Doug Yowell on drums, and long-time collaborator Graham Maby on bass (Maby was on that first recording session 40 years ago as well).
Starting February 2019, Jackson and the band will embark on a new world tour, playing shows throughout the US and Europe and performing material drawn off five albums (“Look Sharp (1979)”, “Night And Day (1982)”, “Laughter And Lust (1991)”, “Rain (2008)” and “Fool (2019)”) as well as a couple of songs from other albums and some new covers.
