In a recent press statement promoting NEW, the 71-year-old rock legend explains what motivates him to continue to want create fresh music.
“It all comes down to the fact that I love it, I love the whole process,” he declares. “When I was a kid, I started getting into music and I got a guitar. Then when I got into a group I was fascinated by the whole thing, this idea of trying to make music and later trying to write songs. It’s become an eternal fascination for me.”
NEW is available as a standard 12-track CD, as well as a deluxe 14-track CD and digital download.
