Brian Fallon posts an update on his solo album

Brian Fallon, the lead singer and guitarist of The Gaslight Anthem, has posted an update in regards to his anticipated solo album, which is supposed to be out this year and the musical direction is said to be a departure from his work with The Gaslight Anthem and The Horrible Crowes. He writes:

“What I’m working on I’d classify as Americana. It’s not from New Jersey, it’s not The Gaslight Anthem, in fact, it’s not even mine, but it’s ours… I’m looking to the people who used folk and country music as a tradition and took what was past and moved forward. Wilco, Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, the Highwaymen, Bob Dylan, etc… I’m not writing about straw hats and gin joints. I’m not writing about nostalgia or a time I wasn’t born it. I’m writing about the last two years of my life since we wrote Handwritten. This project is going to be based on things I learned early on musically, which were my mother’s folk songs. We also listened to a lot of early country. I’d like to write my years down.”

The Gaslight Anthem released their last album, Handwritten, on Mercury Records in July. The band recently announced that they have been working on another album, but did not reveal a release date.
