DBT is back ya'll with the release of their newest album, Brighter Than Creation's Dark, on January 22, 2008. We're talking 19 songs yo, 7 of which are Cooley songs and a couple by Shonna as well. In fact, you can read Patterson's thoughts on the album here. It will be a nice way to ring in the new year.
During The Dirt Underneath Tour, piano player Spooner Oldham sat in with the band. He is a legend of the Muscle Shoals music scene, having worked with practically any legend you can come up with. Near the end of the tour, DBT covered one of his songs I'm Your Puppet, a song made famous in the 1960s and covered by practically everybody. Kelly Hogan helps out with vocals and, as she says, this is about the only chance you'll ever get to make out at a Drive-By Truckers show. That is, unless you and your girl find it romantic to talk about beating each other and drinkin' whiskey.
Anyway, lots of the new DBT songs were road tested during the Dirt Underneath Tour, so you can dig through the Live Archive if you feel inclined. In my never ending quest to nurture my patience, I am planning to wait till the record hits stores. Maybe.
