Jon Spencer Clears Up Misconception About Blues Explosion Album: Blues Explosion News

(Classic Rock) Jon Spencer has denied that his Blues Explosion's latest album Freedom Tower is a eulogy to a lost New York. It was released earlier this year, and he says it's actually a celebration of the city the band have called home for a quarter of a century.

He tells UnderTheRadar: "It's not meant to be a nostalgic trip, it's not meant to be a lament. I don't think we should try to reverse the progress or turn back the hands of time.

"New York City has changed a great deal, probably everything I feel in love with about the city is gone. But a city has to change. Not all of the record is about 'What happened to the city I loved? Where did this place go?'" Read more here.
