New music from John Mellencamp is on the way, according to Side Stage Magazine. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer says he has been working on his 25th album, due out later this year. On his official website, Mellencamp shared a one-minute clip of one of the new tunes called “I Always Lie To Strangers,” along with a note about hoping to tour in 2022.
The 69-year-old singer also announced that he’s releasing a live album this spring as well as a documentary entitled The Good Samaritan Tour. The film follows John Mellencamp’s journey around the U.S. in 2000 when he played a series of free, unannounced concerts at public parks and on street corners. It will be narrated by actor Matthew McConaughey. You can see a preview below.
