(Radio.com) The Grateful Dead's Bob Weir hasn't released a solo album in 10 years, and it's been 30 years since his last album of 100 percent new music. Through his legendary touring career jamming through interpretations of classics has taken priority.

Nevertheless, Weir will release a solo album--of all new material--titled Blue Mountain on September 30th. The project has been gestating for a while. Last year Weir discussed his collaborators:

"The idea came from Josh Kaufman and his circle of friends, particularly Josh Ritter," Weir told Relix. "It's, for the most part, all new songs. I've been working with Josh Ritter a fair bit on some ideas, and I'm going to also drag in John Barlow and Gerrit Graham as well."

Weir will hit the road for a short run of solo dates in support of the new album in October. Check out the Blue Mountain track listing, and Weier's fall dates here.
