The 2012 Album has at least 1 guestPosted by Jake Vigliotti in Album News at 3:14pm on Friday, Mar 23rd, 2012
Even though the flow of info has been light, a few nuggets do leak through pertaining to the new Dave Matthews Band album. And given the era we live in, it's fitting that Facebook is the culprit. According to Tower Of Power keyboardist Roger Smith, he is playing on the new DMB album, as says his facebook.
The news of guests comes sort of out of left field; no one anticipated anything like that, and based on the few leaks of info, it seemed as though the sessions in Seattle were just the present DMB. Tower Of Power is opening a few shows (West Palm Beach among them), so clearly whatever songs have keys on them on the new album, chances are that Roger Smith will be sitting in on them in those shows.
So... what does that mean exactly? More "Butch Era" songs? Or more like Before These Crowded Streets with strategically placed keyboards to add more depth to songs (like Rapunzel)? And what do we make of a tweet from Stefan which claims that he also played keys on "something"? Dueling pianos? Or something worse than that?
Be on the lookout for some more news to come trickling out soon, but in the mean time, hang your hat on some piano on the new album.
