Westerberg "Feeling" Fall CDs

Two Albums, DVD documentary coming in October

September 2, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Former Replacements frontman Paul Westerberg will release two albums of new material as well as a DVD in October. The singer-songwriter's Come Feel Me Tremble, featuring fourteen new tracks as well as a cover of Jackson Browne's "These Days," is due October 21st, as is a DVD version of the documentary of the same name.

Otto Zithromax and Rick Fuller directed the documentary, which captures Westerberg on tour last year in support of his double release Stereo/Mono. The film debuted this summer in San Francisco and will get a limited release in theaters around the country this fall.

Also planned for October is Dead Man Shake, a new collection of blues songs from Westerberg's Grandpaboy alter-ego. "I've created a confusing nut for them to crack," Westerberg told Rolling Stone about Grandpaboy, under which he put out Mono last year. "It's this dead character who plays rock & roll. It seemed like this is a perfect extension of taking a lot of drugs and being wasted and swinging from chandeliers. This is just as daring and stupid and redundant."

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
