John Mellencamp Plain Spoken 180g LP
22nd Studio Album from Mellencamp on 180g Vinyl!
John Mellencamp rose to superstardom in the 1980s while "honing an almost
startlingly plainspoken writing style that, starting in 1982, yielded a string
of Top 10 singles," including "Hurts So Good," "Jack & Diane," "Crumblin' Down,"
"Pink Houses," "Lonely Ol' Night," "Small Town," "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.,"
"Paper in Fire," and "Cherry Bomb."
To date, John has released 21 studio albums. He has released 10 albums that have
all been certified platinum or multi-platinum in the United States. A Grammy
Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, John Mellencamp recently signed a
historic 'Lifetime' deal with Republic Records. Known as "The Voice of the
Heartland", Mellencamp has touched the hearts and souls of music listeners and
influenced American culture with enduring songs. His 22nd full-length album,
Plain Spoken, is a stunningly elegant and soul-searching gem.
Produced by T Bone Burnett, Mellencamp continues to evolve artistically with
Plain Spoken -- the first new music from the artist since 2010's critically
acclaimed No Better Than This, which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top
200 and received the honor of being on Rolling Stone's "Best Albums of 2010"
list. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has created an important body of work that
has earned him both critical respect and an enormous audience. An authoritative
and eloquent storyteller who speaks to the sensibilities of the nation,
Mellencamp is also one of the most successful live concert performers in the
world. A man with a conscience, he used his visibility and influence to advocate
an issue that hit close to home and became one of the founding members of Farm
Aid, an organization that began in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of
family farm. The Farm Aid concerts have raised over $45 million to promote a
resilient family farm system of agriculture.
