Earlier this week, I was contacted by a representative from Cherry Red Records, the record label of Jack Bruce, notifying me that the one and only Jack Bruce has released his first album in over 10 years titled, Silver Rails.
This album will mark the first release of Jack’s since his 2003 release, More Jack than God.
In support of the album, Jack has also announced a give away on his Facebook page. Jack will be giving away a slew of goodies including a signed CD copy of Silver Rails, a signed Warwick Mini Bass Collectors Model, a Jack Bruce Merchandise Pack and a signed extremely rare copy of a vinyl test pressing of Silver Rails. To enter the contest, all you need to do is contribute to the ultimate (repeat: ultimate) Jack Bruce Fan Archive by submitting either:
a photo of yourself or your friends at a Jack Bruce concert or
a photo of Jack performing on stage.
Upload your photos to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag Silver Rails (#SilverRails) and leave a note where and when the photo was taken.
Jack has also done a series of interviews providing the details behind the album, talking about his inspirations for the album, how he wanted this album to sound like his first album Songs for a Tailor and more.
This video is only part one of the series of interview Jack did. Check out the remaining 10 parts here.
And to order the album (and I know you the reader want to), check it out here.

‘Silver Rails’ is the eagerly awaited new studio album by the legendary JACK BRUCE, one of the greatest popular musicians Britain has ever produced. A supremely talented instrumentalist and vocalist, eminently respected by his peers, Jack’s pioneering bass playing style has influenced successive generations of bassists, including such luminaries as Paul McCartney, Jaco Pastorius and Sting, alongside more contemporary musicians such as Flea of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. He is also the possessor of one of the most powerful voices in modern music and a composer of some of the most original and influential music of the past forty-five years. As a songwriter he has written some of popular music’s enduring classics such as “Sunshine of Your Love”, “White Room”, “I Feel Free” and “Theme from an Imaginary Western”.
