BOXED SET OUT NEXT TUESDAY DECEMBER 10
 
John Mellencamp 1978 – 2012, a uniquely comprehensive boxed set collection covering the legendary singer/songwriter’s principal studio albums, will be released by Universal Music Enterprises on December 10. Pre-order now at www.amazon.com or via the Mellencamp.com Store to ensure holiday delivery. The collection consists of a total of 19 CDs originally released over a recording career that spans 35 years.
 
 John Mellencamp 1978- 2012, for the first time, combines in one package, albums Mellencamp recorded as John Cougar, John Cougar Mellencamp and John Mellencamp for Polygram, Universal, Sony and Concord-affiliated labels. The set contains a total of 223 tracks and includes such mythic album titles as American Fool, Lonesome Jubilee, Scarecrow, Cuttin’ Heads and the more recent Life, Death Love and Freedom and No Better Than This. Thirteen of the albums in the collection were RIAA®-certified as Gold, Platinum or Multiplatinum winners while ten of the albums achieved Top Ten status on Billboard’s Top 100 Album Chart. Of special note is the fact that the collection includes the long out-of-print original soundtrack album to Falling From Grace, the Mellencamp-directed film that was a collaboration with noted author Larry McMurty. That disc includes tracks by Mellencamp, Dwight Yoakam, Nanci Griffith, Joe Ely, James McMurtry and John Prine.
John Mellencamp 1978- 2012 includes every one of Mellencamp’s thirty Billboard Top 100 singles, from "I Need A Lover" and "Jack & Diane" to "Pink Houses" and "Rain On The Scarecrow," as well as such classics as "Paper in Fire," "Hurts So Good," "Crumblin’ Down," "Jackie Brown," "Small Town," "Wild Night," "R.O.C.K In The U.S.A.," "Our Country" and, quite literally, all the rest. There are bonus tracks concluding twelve of the albums, sourced from the 2005 re-mastered versions of Mellencamp’s Mercury releases. Mellencamp holds the record for the most tracks (7) by a solo artist to hit the top position on Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart, all of which are, of course, included in John Mellencamp 1978 – 2012.
 
 Never content to rest on his many laurels, Mellencamp has been writing new songs for an album he plans to record early this coming year, once more with T Bone Burnett slated to produce.

THE  PAINTINGS OF JOHN MELLENCAMP ON EXHIBIT AT THE BUTLER INSTITUTE OF AMERICAN ART
The Butler Institute of American Art is to present the exhibition "The Paintings of John Mellencamp" now through January 12, 2014. This show, which features some forty paintings, some never before seen by the public, is the artist's first art museum exhibition.  According to Dr. Louis A. Zona, Director and Curator of the Butler, "In  choosing these works, mostly portraits, I am interested in the dialogue  between Mellencamp's work and the Butler's more traditional collection of  19th- and 20th-century American art by masters including John Singer  Sargent, Winslow Homer, and Raphael Soyer. John's work is beautifully  executed and speaks of themes that are universal. He has very strong  opinions, be they sociological or political, which are right up front in  these works. They're incredibly fascinating studies"  Read the complete press release HERE for more details. We have a number of articles about the show, including several interviews by John, on the Mellencamp.com News page.
 
The Paintings of John Mellencamp will travel to the Museum of Art-DeLand,  Florida, where it will be on view from October 16, 2014 through January 4, 2015.  Plans are being finalized for the exhibition to travel to additional museums.

A full-color catalogue with an essay by Hilarie M. Sheets, a contributing  editor to ARTnews who writes regularly for The New York Times, will accompany  the exhibition. In her essay, Sheets, writes," Mellencamp's "discovery of early  20th-century modernists including Chaim Soutine, Walt Kuhn, and particularly the  German Expressionists Otto Dix and Max Beckmann pointed the way toward a visceral, pared down approach to portraiture".
