“…one of rock's most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years.” – Los Angeles Times
Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns, the latest album from acclaimed musician and songwriter
John Hiatt, is available now on New West Records. This is Hiatt’s twentieth solo
album and follows his acclaimed 2010 release, The Open Road, which the Los Angeles Times
heralded as a, “bluesy, heartland-soaked musical excursion,” while the Buffalo News declared it “a classic for the future.”As an added bonus, a deluxe version of the album will be made available, which will include a special behind-the-scenes DVD, The Making of Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns and 24/96 High Resolution audio mix of the entire album.
John Hiatt’s career as a performer and songwriter has spanned more than 30 years and his work has been covered by everyone from Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, BB King, and Bonnie Raitt to Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night and The Neville Brothers. Hiatt began his solo career with the 1974 album Hangin’ Around the Observatory. His landmark 1987 release Bring The Family received critical praise and was his first album to chart in the U.S. In 1993, Rhino Records released Love Gets Strange: The Songs of John Hiatt, which collected many of the cover versions of his songs that were recorded during the 80s and 90s. 2000’s Crossing Muddy Waters was released to critical acclaim and was called “The most natural and relaxed John Hiatt album in years…” by All Music Guide.
In 2008, Hiatt was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was
honoured by the Americana Music Association with their prestigious “Lifetime Achievement in Songwriting Award.”
