Three decades have passed since a restless, wild-eyed teenager from northwest England first packed his bags for London to pursue his passion for music, and though he has enjoyed formidably staying power, chart-topping records and sold-out concerts around the world, John Waite's hunger has never diminished - it has simply become something much more complex. The turn of the page to 2011 finds the ever-evolving British singer/songwriter preparing the release of "Rough and Tumble", John Waite's anticipated new studio album recorded partly in Nashville and recently wrapped up in Los Angeles with the members of his touring band. Waite says. "As much as the live album released last may was a defining moment and as much as I enjoyed playing those songs, I consider this album as a new beginning." Waite is referring specifically to the sweet pocket of creativity he enjoyed with Matchbox 20 lead guitarist/songwriter Kyle Cook. The two wrote plenty of fresh new music for "Rough & Tumble". "It's pretty much extraordinary," Waite says of the material he created with Cook, who he met through a mutual friend. "It's not like what people would expect from me. It's a step to the left. There's a rock imprint on the music and a melodic presence, but it's just shifted gears. It has an identity and a philosophy of its own, which is really fresh for me." The collaboration has proved to be nothing short of phenomenal, and songs like "Evil" (a thumping rocker-meets-dance-club tour de force), "Better Off Gone" (a hook-laced better-off-on-the-open-road anthem), "Love's Goin' Out of Style" and the magic ballad "If You Ever Get Lonely". "I'm not saying it's high art, but genuinely speaking, it's fantastic for me," Waite says, reflecting on his new music. "I certainly am interested in spending the rest of my life doing something creative rather than just living in the past". This eclectic collection of brand new music, Waite's first studio album since 2007's "Downtown…Journey of Heart", is set for a January 2011 release in Europe on Frontiers Records.
