The Wallflowers are releasing their first album in seven years, Glad All Over, which is set for release on Oct. 2 via Columbia Records. The album, which was recorded in Nashville, is the band’s attempt to modernize their rock sound and even add a little reggae influence with the vocal and guitar contributions of the Clash’s Mick Jones on the track “Reboot the Mission.”
Frontman Jakob Dylan told Rolling Stone the band’s current goal is to be “a rock band that could make a dance track too, without crossing over to the extreme side.” After recording Glad All Over wrapped in February, Dylan told the magazine that he and the rest of the band are anxious to head out and share the new tracks. “We’ve been patient, and we could not be more excited.”
