Doobie Brothers Releases New Album

Posted October 4, 2010 by J Matthew Cobb in News

The Doobies are back with a brand new album and, according to the New York Post,  it’s already making noise as a potential Grammy candidate for the coveted Album of the Year award.

Now approaching their 40th anniversary, the Doobie Brothers are still kicking. They still draw crowds to their shows and tours religiously; with an average of 90 domestic shows per year and co-headlining with big names like Chicago and ZZ Top. With over 40 million records sold worldwide, and with a batch of chart-topping hit singles like “China Groove,” “Listen to the Music,” “Long Train Runnin’,” “What a Fool Believes” and “Black Water,” the Doobies are proving to be just as good as aged wine.

On September 28, the band, with Northern California roots, released their latest project, World Gone Crazy, on the independent HOR Entertainment label.  The band was a bit leery of signing with HOR because of it being an indie, according to long time Doobie manager Bruce Cohn says. “HOR just surfaced as people who seemed to have genuine interest in bringing the band back into the forefront of their audience and gaining a new audience and seemd to really have the fire.”

A live CD/DVD package is also in the works for the veteran band, as well as a concept album with the band reviving their catalog with some extra guests on board.

The Doobies have already started to work some of their material from the new album into their shows, including “Nobody, “Chateau” and the album’s title cut.

About the new album, Dan Aquilante of the New York Post highlighted a few artists and albums that may show up on the ballot for next year’s Grammys. And the Doobies made the list as a potential nominee for Album of the Year.
