T Bone’s New Album, Tooth Of Crime To Be Released May 13 On Nonesuch

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

T Bone’s new album, Tooth Of Crime, will be released worldwide May 13, 2008 on Nonesuch Records. The new album is an outgrowth of a long-running collaboration with playwright Sam Shepard that began with the 1996 musical staging of his noted play Tooth of Crime (Second Dance) in New York. The songs are distillations of modern conflicts and personal drama in a modern hyper-reality. Following Burnett’s highly praised 2006 album The True False Identity, this new collection is the realization of years of work to fully capture the inspiration of Shepard’s forceful ideas.  Click Here for the Tooth Of Crime E-Card and to sample some of the new tunes.  Click Here to pre-order the album on Amazon.com.
