Joseph Arthur Releases Ballad Of Boogie Christ Video
He says of his tenth record: "I don't know that there's a beginning, middle and end to the story, but there are definitely experiences, situations and perspectives that point in those directions. I wanted to let the listener fill in some of the blanks without telling the whole story in a straight-ahead way.
"I've heard David Bowie talk about how Ziggy Stardust and some other records were the beginnings of screenplays that he just never finished. I could really see this becoming something deeper and bigger than just an album.
"Chuck Prophet reminded me that there's always the Great American Novel. That's what I've been wanting to achieve with this album." Check out the video here.
