    Expect to hear more from John Mellencamp, nee Cougar, in 2014, as the Midwest's version of The Boss has been working on new music and has a "notebook with 85 new songs" penned.

    The singer told Rolling Stone that producer T-Bone Burnett will head to Indiana in January and then they'll hit the studio where they will make the 'Camp's first album in five years.

    Post-recording, Mellencamp will hit the road. "I want to do 100 shows in the United States and Canada," he said. "Then I'll deal with the rest of the world later. I want to play places I haven't played since the 1980s."

    Nice!
