It's been 20 years since Joe Walsh's last solo record, 1992's Songs for A Dying Planet, but on June 5th the Eagles and James Gang guitarist will break that silence with the release of Analog Man. Filled with steady rockers like "Hi-Roller Baby" and "Wrecking Ball," not to mention heaps of hot licks (check out the beginning of "India"), Analog Man can be streamed in its entirety here, and you can pre-order the record on iTunes as well.

"I had a really good time doing this album," Walsh told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. "It was great to get my brains out onto a CD. I really think I'm back, and it's not going to be another 25 years until the next one."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
