'Back In The Crowd', second single from upcoming album Bad As Me, now available digitally

After the title track became available last month, a second single has now been released from Tom Waits' upcoming Bad As Me album, his first since 2004's 'Real Gone'. 'Back In The Crowd' is available digitally from all the usual outlets.

There's no audio available online right now, but it'll no doubt find its way onto YouTube soon enough. 'Back In The Crowd' is described by the label as a "romantic ballad featuring the Spanish Tinge guitar work of both David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) and long time collaborator, Marc Ribot. Crooned in his best 'Jim Reeves-meets-Elvis tenor' Waits’ describes his richly intimate performance 'as an old fashioned jukebox tune for a slow dance with your girl (or guy).'"

Bad As Me is coming out on October 24th - you can preorder it at Waits' website.
