Robbie Robertson to release new record in April

Robbie Robertson

It’s been years since Robbie Robertson has felt the need to go back into the studio to record new music. This April, with help from a handful of talent, Robertson will release How To Become Clairvoyant, his first record in 13 years. Featuring Eric Clapton on six of the tracks, three that he co-wrote with Robertson, the album also sports guest appearances from Steve Winwood, Tom Morello, Trent Reznor, Robert Randolph, and Rocco Deluca.

Though Robertson has been putting together music for soundtracks over the course of the last 20 years , he hasn’t released a rock and roll record since a string of four records he did starting in 1987. At that time, Robertson collaborated with producer Daniel Lanois to produce his first record since retiring from The Band.

The album was well received and featured guest spots from Bono, Peter Gabriel, and The BoDeans. After that, Robertson released Storyville in 1991 before digging into his Indian roots to produce the 1994 Music For Native Americans. 1998 saw the last rock record from Robertson entitled Contact From The Underworld of Redboy.

No word on if Robertson will support this record with any live dates, but it sure would be nice to see him out on the road again.
