Recent Guitar World cover star Joe Walsh will release his long-awaited new album, Analog Man, on June 5, and we're giving away a special Joe Walsh prize package. Enter now to win one of three limited edition deluxe versions of the album, a "Joe Walsh for President" T-shirt and Analog Man on cassette!
Analog Man is Walsh's first new studio album in two decades. “It’s been 20 years and I have a lot to say,” Walsh said. “These songs come from the heart. I just really feel like it’s all come together and finally I feel like a complete person and a complete musician,” said Walsh. “I think there is some confidence in there that I never had. That’s what I was hiding.” Walsh credits his wife of four years, Marjorie, for encouraging him to be the man and artist he is today and fondly dedicates this album to her.
The 10-track album was produced by Jeff Lynne and Joe Walsh and features Ringo Starr on several tracks.
Walsh joined The Eagles in 1976 and is credited for bringing a harder rock sound to the band with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live. A singer-songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Walsh has entertained for more than four decades, not only as a solo artist, but as part of admired bands like The James Gang and Barnstorm.
