Check this out!... Get to know a little bit of history on Dave Stewart... PLUS there's a much longer clip of "Cheaper Than Free" than what's on The Blackbird Diaries website... I'm liking what I hear.. Sounds really great!... This interview was recorded last fall when he was in Nashville.
"What's faster than a fast car
A beating heart
What's deeper than a deep well
The love into which I fell
More important than freedom
More exciting than high fashion
It's the version that's on Dave's album (he called it the country version), which sounds as if there's an alternate version that'll be on Stevie's album. He also tells the story about where the song title came from.
Dave's album The Blackbird Diaries is due out in May.
"Here's the episode with Dave Stewart. Acts he's been part of include Eurythmics, Traveling Wilburys, The Tourists, and Longdancer. As a songwriter and producer, he's worked with dozens of acts including No Doubt, Imogen Heap, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, Katy Perry, Aretha Franklin, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
His new album, The Blackbird Diaries, was recorded in just four days and includes 14 new songs, including a co-write with Bob Dylan and duets with Stevie Nicks, Martina McBride, and Colbie Caillat.
This episode talks his new album and has the stories behind the songs and how they were recorded. We talk Dave's first record deal, working with Elton John's record label, touring the world with Annie Lennox, his songwriting process, how Traveling Wilburys was formed, artist development, and what it's like to work with iconic artists like Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks."
