Timothy B. Schmit Reveals New Song, Reacts To Glenn Frey Death

Timothy B. Schmit

(The Blues) Timothy B. Schmit has made his new song "Red Dirt Road" available to stream. It comes from the Eagles bassist upcoming fifth solo album "Leap Of Faith."

Schmit says that Red Dirt Road is inspired by Hawaiian island Kaua'i. He tells Rolling Stone: "There's some rich, deep soil there. You have a good chance of growing a plumeria tree by just sticking a branch of a plumeria into the ground. It's unbelievable.

"That was the motivation. It's a song about trying to enjoy your life. You can go about your daily business and see it from sunup to sundown - and see it in the best light possible, too - and then just enjoy yourself."

Schmit also admits that he and his Eagles bandmates are "still processing" the death of Glenn Frey, who died earlier this year aged 67 after a battle with intestinal problems. They're set to perform at the Kennedy Center Honors show in Washington DC this December, after they were forced to cancel their 2015 appearance because of Frey's illness.

He continues: "He's dead. It's unbelievable. It didn't happen that long ago. Everybody is still processing it. But part of processing it is carrying on." Read more and stream the song here.
