Music-News.com reports that Burdon recorded the album in New Orleans and California through 2010 and 2011. Burden said in a statement: “I started feeling that I needed to use this album as a catharsis, to express my own truth. 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.
“During the making of this record, we lost Bo Diddley, one of my greatest influences. There were many things I would have said to him, if I’d realized that his time was limited.” Til Your River Runs Dry will be released on September 18.
