Alejandro Escovedo & friend @ SXSW

Alejandro Escovedo's new album, Big Station, will be released on June 5, and though he'll be peforming in NYC on that night, as usual, there are plenty of chances to see him play in Austin coming up (most of them at the Continental Club where he also played last night). All dates are listed, with a video of Alejandro performing of his new Chuck Prophet co-written songs, below...

Alejandro performs a new song @ SXSW

Alejandro Escovedo will release his 11th solo album 'Big Station,' June 5th, 2012 on Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group. Produced by Tony Visconti, 'Big Station' finds the ever-evolving Texas rocker highly-charged with spirit and purpose. The album's hard snap and sharp arrangements recall much of the great music Escvovedo absorbed as it blasted out of AM and FM radios throughout the 60's and 70's. Largely co-written with frequent collaborator Chuck Prophet, the album's 12 songs bristle with tension and hope as Escovedo fights to keep faith in a changing world and hold onto love.

1. Man Of The World
