Rock icon Patti Smith will spend 2015 celebrating the 40th anniversary of her breakthrough debut album, Horses. Happy 40th to Smith and to Horses.
As part of the celebration, Smith will hold Horses-related events around the world, where she will perform the album in its entirety.
Rock fans will clamor for the opp to experience that, that's for sure.
"The exact [release] date is November 10, and I want to celebrate it in New York in a special way," Smith told Rolling Stone. "We have things we'll be doing in Paris and London, everywhere, because it's a true milestone. I'm proud to have a milestone like that... I think we continue to deliver all of these songs sometimes stronger than when I was young, so I'm going to be happy to celebrate it, to perform the album with happiness, not with any kind of cynicism or a cashing-in thing. It will be a true, proud celebration."
True and proud! Giddy up, Patti Smith fans.
