Blues Traveler are going lunar.
They will release Blow Up the Moon on April 7 on Loud & Proud Records. A clever collaboration between various artists, Blow Up the Moon sees Blues Traveler keep an open-minded perspective on making music and they enlist an eclectic mix of songwriters influenced by the band's remarkable 25-plus year career that includes multi-platinum albums and a commanding live show that continues to draw thousands of fans.
Trust us, the list of collabos is pretty striking.
"We wanted to experiment with co-writing since we usually try to do everything in-house, in this misguided homage to The Beatles," says singer John Popper.
Blow Up the Moon allowed Blues Traveler to expand their musical palette, while holding the foundation of their distinct and explosive brand of rock. "We found quality writers to see what they could bring to us as a band, and also people who could see our strengths, something that's hard to see for yourself," Popper said.
Blow Up the Moon features collaborating artists Thompson Square, Plain White T's, 3OH!3, Hanson, Jewel, Secondhand Serenade, JC Chasez (*NSYNC), Bowling for Soup, New Hollow and Thomas Ian Nicholas.
Wow! What a cool roster of collaborators!
