Having a lazy Saturday afternoon and thought I’d do a Google search to see if there’s any more information out there on “The Snake King.” He recently announced at a concert that the first single will be “Little Demon” and then this European website announced another one of the songs, “In the Land of the Blind” and the title track, “The Snake King”:
Here’s what the website said about “The Snake King”:
“Rick Springfield’s resume as a successful musician and actor need not be repeated here as it has been well documented many times over the years. What needs to be discussed here is that The Snake King will NOT be the Rick Springfield album you or anyone else was expecting. Rick, not for the first time in his career, has thrown a curveball that surprises and absolutely delights at the same time.
The Snake King finds Rick travelling down a dusty dirt road to explore the blues side of his rock ‘n roll. All you have to do is check out two of the first couple cuts on the album, “In The Land Of The Blind” and “Little Demon” or also the title-track to get an understanding of the blues laden journey Rick had decided to allow us to join him on.
And of the many delights on this album, Rick’s grossly underrated guitar playing really shines here, perhaps moreso than on any album in his storied catalog. As for the lyrics? Not what you’d expect either, but we’ll leave it up to the listener to decide what’s being relayed there.”
Sounds intriguing – now we just have to wait two months and a day until we can listen to it. (Unless some songs will be released earlier like in the past. Hope so!)
