Jakob Dylan- Going Solo
Wallflowers frontman Jakob Dylan has announced he is putting out his first solo album, Seeing Things which is hitting stores this June 10, on Columbia Records and also in association with Starbucks Entertainment.
Dylan, who has worked with the Wallflowers since the early 90's, worked on 'Seeing Things' with producer Rick Rubin at his home studio in the Hollywood Hills throughout 2007. The album is said to be mostly acoustic by choice as Dylan has said he needed something different from the sounds of The Wallflowers. He and Rubin stripped back the production to try and create a more simple and powerful album based on sounds of American roots music.
'Seeing Things' will be available simultaneously at Starbucks company-operated locations in the U.S. and Canada and at traditional retail via Columbia.
