Hi all,

Saw this on social media but not on here - the Jayhawks are heavily involved in Wesley Stace's album, due out in February. Here is the blurb from amazon

"With Wesley Stace's John Wesley Harding, Wesley Stace wants everyone to know that he is the artist formerly known as John Wesley Harding. While he may have, "broken up the band," he is joined by The Jayhawks on his new album and together they deliver some fantastic songs including "Better Tell No One Your Dreams," "Let's Evaporate," and "You're A Song." "

One could therefore say "happy new year", and that's what I wish you all.

It was posted on the Jayhawks website, Tumblr and social media on November 5 but I evidently forget to drop a mention here. Oops.

I like John Wesley Harding although he is a bit on the mellow side. Usually has some interesting and funny tunes.

Not sure I would be excited about this as a "Jayhawks" fan, but some sweet sounding songs on first listen. It is cool how the band seems to be in demand (Ray Davies album, tour, etc.).
