Grammy winner John McEuen released his new album, The Newsman, on April 12 on Compass Records. An unprecedented move for McEuen, the album is 11 spoken word tracks, all mini movies with his unique style of music behind each one. From the opening title track, which is a true story about a man who sold newspapers and was a tremendous influence on the young musician in Los Angeles, to the final cut, “Julie’s Theme,” inspired by Jules Verne telling a friend, in a French cemetery, about his recently deceased young wife, McEuen presents an album filled with stories that will inspire and perhaps bring a tear to your eye.
