New Music: John Mellencamp Releases Strictly a One Eyed Jack


John Mellencamp’s 25th studio album, Strictly A One-Eyed Jack, is set for release 1/21/22 on Republic Records.

The album was written and produced by Mellencamp, recorded at his Belmont Mall Studios in Indiana, and recorded/mixed by GRAMMY-award winner David Leonard. It features a number of longtime band members including Andy York, Dane Clark, Mike Wanchic, Troye Kinnett, and more. It also features three collaborations with Bruce Springsteen including the landmark duet “Wasted Days.”

Johns’s voice reflects his age and years of smoking but he’s like an aged bottle of your favorite spirit, a welcoming familiar enjoyment. It’s John and Bruce Springsteen, how can you go wrong?
