John Mellencamp Working On Next Album

(hennemusic) John Mellencamp is in the early stages of work on his first new album in three years and is once again teaming up with T Bone Burnett who also worked on 2008's "Live, Death, Love and Freedom" and 2010's "No Better Than This".

"I've got a notebook with 85 new songs that I've written for my next record," he tells Rolling Stone. "T Bone Burnett is going to come out to Indiana sometime in early January and we're gonna go into the studio for however long it takes to make a new album. I haven't done one in five years."

A few months ago, Mellencamp brought his touring band out to Indiana to run through some of the new tracks. "I don't know if any of those songs will make the record," he says. "But we arranged them and recorded them on a small digital recorder. And this month I'm bringing out the core of the band, not the violinist, but the guitar players and bass player, and we're gonna go over the new stuff." More from John here.
