Ian Hunter, ‘When I’m President’ – Most Anticipated Fall 2012 Albums
We're pretty sure that being born in England makes him ineligible, but former Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter throws his hat into our election ring anyway with the Sept. 4 release of 'When I'm President.'
Actually, unlike his most recent album, 2009's 'Man Overboard,' don't look for a ton of heavy-handed political messages on 'When I'm President.' “The songs seem to be more upbeat this time round,” Hunter explains. “The last two albums were pretty political, just because I thought the Bush years were horrible, and thankfully that’s passed.”
Hunter and his Rant band will embark on a tour to promote the album starting Sept. 1 in Portland, OR.
