Reunited hard rockers Mr. Big have completed with producer Kevin “The Caveman” Shirley their new album — the first to feature all four of the band’s original members since “Hey Man” in 1995.
According to Mr. Big bassist Billy Sheehan, the forthcoming album will feature “impossible bass and guitar stuff” and will be musically similar to the band’s 1991 breakthrough, “Lean Into It” — the LP that featured the No. 1 single “To Be With You.”
News from Eric Martin – “Doing background vocals with the guys this week and then it’s mixing time for the new Mr. Big record. Out December 15th!” Can’t wait!!
Frontiers Records released Mr. Big’s reunion live CD and DVD, entitled “Back To Budokan,” in October 2009. The set featured footage of the band’s June 20th, 2009 performance at Budokan in Tokyo, Japan.
Mr. Big released a new “best-of” album titled “Next Time Around” in April 2009 through WHD Entertaiment. The collection included songs that were voted on by fans and contains two previously unreleased songs, “Next Time Around” (2009 remastered version) and “Hold Your Head Up” (2009 remastered version). It was made available as a limited deluxe edition with a bonus DVD.
I can’t wait to hear how it’s going to sound!!
