Blue Mountain Available on September 30, 2016
Bob Weir’s upcoming record Blue Mountain is set for release at the end of this month. Weir just released an audio track for ‘Lay My Lily Down’ on YouTube.
A quick note from Bob Weir‘s team on Blue Mountain:
Before he co-founded the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir spent a summer working and living on a ranch in Wyoming, sparking a lifelong fascination with the stories and songs of the American West. Blue Mountain, Weir’s first solo album in over 10 years, brings his musical journey full circle. Working with producer Josh Kaufman, acclaimed songwriter Josh Ritter,guitarists Aaron and Bryce Dessner and bassist Scott Devendorf, Blue Mountain is a moody, highly textured modern interpretation of Weir’s unforgettable experience.
“When I was 15 I ran away to be a cowboy. I found myself working in Wyoming living in a bunk house with a bunch of old cowpokes and ranch hands, and a lot of those guys had grown up in a era before radio had even got to Wyoming.” – Bob Weir
Blue Mountain is Bob Weir’s first solo release since Weir Here in 2004, and the first to feature entirely new music in 30 years. Weir continues to push himself to creative heights with each song on Blue Mountain. ‘Lay My Lily Down’ showcases powerful vocals by Weir, and a thunderous drum section from Joe Russo and Ray Rizzo.
