It seems too crazy to be true. It was over a year ago that I read about a potential collaboration between Dwight Yoakam and Beck. I thought it was too good to be true and as the months rolled by I thought my hunch was correct. No way Jose.
I’ve never been so glade to be mistaken. The recently announced â€œ3 Pears,â€ is the result of that creative union and will be be released Sept. 18. It’s also Yoakam’s first studio album of original material since in seven years â€Žand his return to Warner Bros. Records.
I read that Yoakam has been working on the 12 songs on the album since 2008 and jokingly describes the process as â€œreaaall reaaaallllll sloooww.â€
Let’s hope it results in a release that’s reaaall reaaaallllll good!
Here’s a little Bakersfield heaven with Dwight joining the Hag on his “Swinging Doors.”
