Eric Burdon of the Animals

 

"Til Your River Runs Dry" is the new album from former Animal Eric Burdon, set for release this September. Eric recorded the album in New Orleans across 2010 with further work done in California.

'I started feeling that I needed to use this album as a catharsis, to express my own truth,' Eric said in a statement. 'It took longer than any other album, not because of time spent in the studio, but because of the subject matter of the songs I wanted to put out there,' Eric explains. The result is a deeply intimate, honest self-portrait as well as unsparing look at religion, politics and the environment.

Eric is listed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time. Bruce Springsteen paid homage to Eric this year. Eric joined Bruce and the E Street Band on stage in Austin to perform "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place. "
