Real Animal

Real Animal, Alejandro Escovedo’s ninth solo album and follow-up to 2006’s criticallyacclaimed The Boxing Mirror, will be released on June 24, 2008. Produced by Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T.Rex, Thin Lizzy), Real Animal is a collective journey through Escovedo’s various musical incarnations from punk rock to string quintets, and is as introspective as it is retrospective. Recalling the people, places, and influences that helped shape his career, Real Animal represents the primitive aspect of Escovedo’s music — the instinct, the urgency, the survivor mentality that fueled his passion.

I saw Alejandro Escovedo as an opener for Dave Matthews a few days ago. Although everyone just wanted to see Dave and wasn't really listening, it was a great opening act. The song, ALWAYS A FRIEND, especially caught my ear. I thought it was real upbeat, a great summer concert to dance and hang out and drink! hahah
