J.J. Cale to release new record, collaborate with Clapton

J.J. Cale

And now the cult hero and enigmatic dude is set to release Roll On, his first solo album in almost five years. Details are spare at the moment, but the record will be Cale's first since his Grammy-winning collaboration with Eric Clapton, The Road to Escondido, and his first on Rounder Records. There's no tracklist yet, but we do know that Clapton will guest on the record's title track. Does that make us excited? All signs point to yes.
