NEW YORK (Billboard) - The Eagles have almost completed their first studio album since 1979’s “The Long Run,” and plan to tour extensively next year, guitarist Joe Walsh says.
“We’re just finishing vocals and mixing it. We’re all finally signing off on it,” Walsh told Billboard.com
All of the band members -- Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Timothy B. Schmit and Walsh -- wrote songs for the album, which he said “go in some really, really new, different directions. It’s hard to compare to anything that I hear out there now.”
For his songs, however, Walsh “went rock ‘n’ roll ... I didn’t want us to be too ballad-y here. We need some stuff we can play live, so I made sure there was that element in the record.”
