Steve Forbert Returning With New Album

Steve Forbert has set a September 11th, 2012 release date for Over With You, his first studio album in three years.

Over With You was produced by Grammy Award-winner Chris Goldsmith (who has worked with Ben Harper, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ruthie Foster and Charlie Musselwhite)

"This album is very personal," Forbert says. "The songs are about what people feel in deep relationships mainly love and friction."

Forbert says he wanted the new album recorded at the cozy Carriage House studio in Los Angeles' Silver Lake neighborhood to be musically sparse. There is no bass on some tracks, for example, creating a haunting vibe on the songs and leaving the spotlight firmly on the lyrics.

"I'm not Lady Gaga," he says. "I went for a much more minimal thing. It's all about the songs."

Nonetheless, the musicianship is superb, with Forbert working for the first time with rising star Ben Sollee on cello and bass, Jason Yates on piano and organs, Michael Jerome on drums, and Sheldon Gomberg on electric and upright bass. There is even a guest appearance by another great songwriter, Ben Harper, as a guitarist on three tracks, including a smoldering solo on the upbeat focus track That'd Be Alright.
