Nick Lowe has announced that his new album, The Old Magic, will come out Sept. 13 on Yep Roc Records. His first new material in four years, the record compliments the mellow half of the Lowe’s extensive and genre-spanning career.
Recorded in London, the matured rocker explores much of the same territory as 2007’s At My Age. On “Checkout Time,” he recalls his days as a reckless youth, singing, “I’m 61 years old now, Lord I never thought I’d see 30.” Those days may be over for Lowe, but his commitment to genuine songwriting has kept him far from being washed up.
Later this month Lowe will play the Meltdown and Glastonbury festivals in the U.K. before embarking on a U.S. tour in the fall.
