New Tom Waits – ‘Back In The Crowd’
Here’s the predictably super-contrasting second single from Tom Waits’ upcoming album Bad As Me. Are we on for an eclectic mix of musical genres in the vain of Orphans?
From Tom’s official site: “‘Back in the Crowd’ is a romantic ballad featuring the Spanish Tinge guitar work of both David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) and long time collaborator, Marc Ribot. Crooned in his best “Jim Reeves-meets-Elvis tenor” Waits’ describes his richly intimate performance “as an old fashioned jukebox tune for a slow dance with your girl (or guy).” Adding to the romance, Hidalgo beat out a Latin clave rhythm using his wedding ring on the side of his Jarana (a traditional 8 string guitar from Vera Cruz).”
