Don Henley Unveils Video for ‘Take a Picture of This’ From ‘Cass County’
It's nothing more than Henley performing the song with a band, but it also suggests that longtime Henley fans shouldn't be too put off by the notion that this is Henley's attempt at a "country" album. Outside of some ghostly pedal steel guitar accents, it doesn't sound very different from an acoustic version of "The Heart of the Matter," his hit from 1990's The End of the Innocence.
ABC News Radio is reporting that, on Sept. 17 at 12:30PM CT, Henley will take part in an hour-long keynote interview as part of the 2015 Americana Music Festival & Conference, which will be held at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Warren Zanes, formerly of the Del Fuegos, will conduct the interview, which can be streamed from the Hall's website.
Cass County, his first solo record since 2000's Inside Job, will be released Sept. 25 in both a 12-song standard edition and a Deluxe edition that includes four bonus tracks. A Super Deluxe edition adds in a 50-page book with exclusive photographs, the double-LP vinyl and some postcards.
Henley will promote the album with a five-week tour of North America beginning Oct. 3 in Phoenix with Shawn Colvin as the opening act, and ticket buyers will receive a copy of the deluxe edition CD. You can find all the dates here.
