Rock band Eagles step back in music scene with a studio album that is heavier on 'rock'n'roll'.
Rock legend Eagles is only few months away from releasing their first studio album in almost three decades. Tentatively titling the album "The Long Road to Eden", the band has just finished the vocals and mixing. Guitarist Joe Walsh said, "We're all finally signing off on it."
What resulted in the five years of work is a new direction that Walsh described "hard to compare to anything that I hear out there now." All of the songs are said to be self-written by the band's present line-up (Walsh, Glenn Frey, Timothy B. Schmit, Don Henley) and Walsh in particular avoids ballad to go for rock'n'roll. "We need some stuff we can play live," he said, "so I made sure there was that element in the record."
During a private show in early June, Henley stated that the album will be out on October 30. While the release date is waiting to be confirmed, Walsh hinted that an extensive tour will take place next year.
