Exclusive: Hear Warren Haynes' New Album, 'Man in Motion'

Warren Haynes has devoted so much time to the Allman Brothers Band, the Dead and Gov't Mule during the past 20 years that he's barely had any space for a solo career. Last year, however, he carved out some time between his endless live commitments and cut his new disc, Man in Motion, at Willie Nelson's studio in Austin, Texas.

Haynes is known for his work in jam bands, but on the new disc (in stores on May 10th) he focuses on soul music – with help from Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan along with Meters members George Porter, Jr. on bass and Ivan Neville on keyboards. You can hear an exclusive stream of the disc here. As of now, the Allman Brothers have no summer tour dates on the books – leaving Haynes plenty of time to promote Man in Motion on a worldwide solo tour that runs through August.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
