After seven years of silence, Tom Waits recently hinted at new music on the horizon.
Granted, it’s only a hint—the idiosyncratic musician isn’t being completely straightforward. This much is known: iTunes announced a preorder for a new single by Waits entitled “Bad as Me.” This prompted a deluge of Internet speculation, including rumors that an album of the same name is soon to follow.
A vague announcement later appeared on Waits’ website saying, “Come to Tomwaits.com on Tuesday August 23rd, and Mr Waits himself will set the record straight,” neither confirming nor denying the rumors of a new album. Guess we’ll have to stay tuned.
