Today, John Mellencamp announces the preorder for his 24th album, Other People’s Stuff  [Republic Records], available everywhere on Friday, December 7th.

Pre-order Other People’s Stuff HERE.

Not only has Mellencamp released hundreds of original songs over his illustrious career, but he has recorded numerous celebrated covers. For as renowned as his original material remains, Mellencamp has breathed new life and spirit into various staples of the classic American musical canon as well. A handpicked selection of those covers comprises the aptly titled, Other People’s Stuff.

Culled from seminal albums, compilations, unearthed sessions and documentaries, this record serves as a proud homage to some of the greatest songs in history. For the album, Mellencamp recorded a brand-new version of “Eyes on the Prize” which was originally performed at The White House. Mellencamp was asked by the Obama administration to perform for the 2010 Celebration of Music from the Civil Rights Movement event. See link to the memorable performance HERE. Check out “Eyes on The Prize” HERE.

About the collection, Mellencamp commented “Most, if not all, of the songs on Other People’s Stuff come from The Great American Songbook. These are songs that have been recorded over the last 40 years of my career, but had never been put together as one piece of work. Now, they have.” Read the complete press release on the news page

Thanks for the info. I have said it in another thread, but will here too - we usually have to wait a while between albums/CDs - so this is another present courtesy of John [the live Chicago CD/DVD was the first] - thank you.  Kiss

I look forward to hearing the new arrangements for some / all? of the songs. As there are only 10 songs that would mean there are still spaces when performing live, for crowd pleasers / hits.

Will John perhaps be performing 'Eyes on the Prize' as a teaser for any of the remaining shows in Canada, such as Kamloops or Kelowna?

Would be a nice surprise for the Canadian fans.

All these years, and I thought To the River was primarily a In original. You learn something new every day...
