    Yes, wow! I didn't know anything about this either. Very exciting! :) That little preview sounds good. I hope this means he'll come back to my neck of the woods for a show in 2018.

    Very cool.

    We decided to make a weekend of it and go to both LA shows; Sunday night with the LA Phil is nearly sold out.

    Anyone listened to this yet? I'm listening right now and am really enjoying it. :) A really nice, relaxing album to spin on a rainy morning (not that I have it to spin yet, unfortunately - Spotify only so far).

    Bought it this morning and am on my second listen. I like it a lot. Can't wait to see him again at the House of Blues in March!

    Nice. I ordered it on Amazon and it says it won't ship for 1 - 2 months, which is stupid. But the price is right.

    I have listened to this over the weekend, multiple times and am really enjoying it. Love his music anyway, so wasn't surprised by it.

    Saw the show last night in Brooklyn. Incredible as always. Roll on Slow into Gloria to open was insane.

    Really love the record too.

    really really like the new disc.  not surprised though.  glen is the man.
  • I have had a couple of listens, but I am neither in love or heart broken at the moment so Glen's music doesn't do as much for me.
    I'll probably have another listen at the weekend!

    but the truth still leaks,

    Oh sweet. My copy just shipped from Amazon today. They had estimated a stupid long wait time, but it wasn't true.

    This album is fantastic. Such a robust sound and typical great songwriting.

    Album is growing on me. I really enjoyed the songs live, and had the opportunity to see Glen in three different types of venues/settings in NYC recently. Solo at Town Hall (small seated theatre), full band at Brooklyn Steel (GA), and a short set right up close at Rough Trade (record store w/ venue). Glen is like PJ in that way--you can see him over and over again, and it's always going to be special and different.

    I really like most everything he does, which I can't say for many artists. Glen is truly an amazing musician!

    We were terrace level on saturday and the very last row in the balcony on sunday. The largo show and sat were almost the same set, which makes sence since largo was basically a warm up gig. Sunday was mesmerising, spent most of that first set with goosebumps running up my arms. Hope they recorded it.

    Man, he put it down in Chicago last night! This guy just continues to impress time and again. Got in line a half hour before doors opened and was in the 2nd row GA. Such a great time! Even a shout out to Eddie.

    my girlfriend was a big Swell Season fan before I met her. We started dating in December of 2008. I remember not caring for the Swell Season so much but I enjoyed the solo Glen stuff. I remember telling her that I thought he would be much more successful without Marketa. I think that annoyed her some at the time. Shortly thereafter, is when he and Eddie started touring together. Now, I think she agrees with me.

    Seeing him again Friday Night in Boston. Will be my second time seeing Glen headline after hearing him open for Eddie a few times before that. He has never disappointed!
