Art of the Cover - Jackson Browne's "Standing In The Breach" (2014)

Apocalypse Now ... indeed!

Yap, Jackson's back ... after just a six year break.

Standing In The Breach, Jackson's fourteenth studio album, is a lovely collection, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life.

With Standing in the Breach, Jackson Browne makes a stunningly bold statement of purpose in a moment that might have been more reflective. After all, his very best music was the subject of a celebrated recent tribute album, something that might have left a lesser artist more humbled than ambitious. Not Browne. His first album of new songs since 2008, set for release on Browne’s own Inside Recordings in October, finds him working at peak creativity — as a writer, as a performer, as a bandmate. 
Standing in the Breach is as layered as it is honest, as reflective as it is determined. Along the way, that takes Browne to places both reliably satisfying, and surprisingly new.
