The BoDeans twelfth studio album, I Can’t Stop, will be released on April 21 through F&A Records. It features world-renowned drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Fogerty, Melissa Etheridge, John Mellencamp) and was mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound (Cold Play, Talking Heads, The Eagles, Norah Jones).
“We had a lot of fun making this record,” says Kurt Neumann, the band’s driving force who reunited with BoDean’s drummer Kenny Aronoff. They are joined by multi-instrumentalist Sam Hawksley.
“There was no pressure. It was just pure positivity. Kenny and I have been recording together for over 25 years and being able to work with such an incredibly talented drummer is such a gift. He always makes the song better.”
Mastered by Ted Jensen and co-produced by Neumann and Hawksley, I Can’t Stop was recorded during tour breaks in Nashville, Los Angeles and Kurt’s home in Austin.
“As an artist, I think you are always trying to grow, yet still stay true to your audience and beliefs,” says Neumann. “American rock and blues have been a big influence in my life and on this record. It’s what I do. Cliché as it sounds, it’s who I am. It’s in my soul.”
