Robbie Robertson

How to Become Clairvoyant 4/5

Robertson returns with his first solo LP in 13 years, with many of the songs emerging from casual songwriting sessions with Eric Clapton almost a decade ago. The reflective, melancholy set – which includes electronic textures by Trent Reznor – is summed up by the title of a key track, "The Right Mistake." "I got that phrase from Thelonious Monk," says Robertson. "I heard him say that in music we're searching for the right mistake. I thought, 'Wow, I completely agree.' It also applies to life."
