Eric Burdon Shares New Song for Memorial Day Weekend

Rock and Roll Hall of famer Eric Burdon (The Animals, WAR) will release his new album, titled ‘Til Your River Runs Dry, on September 18 via ABKCO Records. As a special preview of the new album, one track, fittingly titled “Memorial Day,” is being offered as a free stream exclusively over Memorial Day weekend.

‘Til Your River Runs Dry features original tracks written by Burdon including “Bo Diddley Special,” “The River Is Rising,” “Water,” “Wait” and and the aforementioned “Memorial Day.” The album was recorded in New Orleans and California in 2010 and 2011.

“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,” says Burdon about the album’s lengthy gestation period. “The result is a deeply intimate, honest self-portrait as well as unsparing look at religion, politics and the environment.”

You can stream “Memorial Day” below.
