Eric Burdon Records with the Greenhorns
Animals/WAR frontman Eric Burdon has enlisted members of The Raconteurs for his next project. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has teamed up with producer and The Raconteurs co-frontman Brendan Benson for a new four-song EP. Garage rock band The Greenhornes, featuring The Raconteurs’ Patrick Keeler and “Little Jack” Lawrence, will back Burdon on the project. The album will be released on 180 gram vinyl only on Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” (November 23) on Burdon’s Readymade Records. The album will be released digitally on November 27..
Benson came up with the idea after collaborating with Burdon at SXSW 2012, and invited The Animals lead to collaborate with The Greenhornes at Nashville’s Welcome to 1979 studio.
