Peter Case Announce First New Album In Five Years 'HWY 62'

(Conqueroo) Peter Case (The Nerves and The Plimsouls) has announced that he will be releasing his first new album in five years. Entitled "HWY 62," the album is set to be released on October 30th. We were sent the following details:

The album takes its title from the highway that connects Ciudad Juarez with Niagara Falls, Ontario. Case was born a block from it, in the Buffalo area. "I always saw HWY 62 as my gateway to the country, my doorway to the west," he says.

Guests joining Peter on the trip include Ben Harper, Jebin Bruni (PIL), Cindy Wasserman and David Carpenter (Dead Rock West), D.J. Bonebrake (X), Don Heffington (Lone Justice), and others. The album was co-produced by Case and Grammy® winner Sheldon Gomberg (Rickie Lee Jones, Mark Eitzel, Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite).

Available on CD, digital, and LP (first pressing on yellow vinyl) with download card, HWY 62 joins the ranks as another stellar album from Peter Case. A trip you should definitely take.

"Everybody says I'm a troubadour, since I perform alone and bring the tales. The challenge was to make a "troubadour album" that rocks with electric energy - Ben Harper and D.J. Bonebrake were key to that," says Case. "HWY 62 connects east with west, north and south. I'm connecting three-chord rock 'n' roll, to all kinds of American music, bringing together stories I've lived and found along the way, music about now."
