JOHN MELLENCAMP announces his 24th album, Other People’s Stuff, available everywhere on Friday, December 7th

Not only has
MELLENCAMP released hundreds of original songs over his illustrious career, but he has recorded numerous celebrated covers. For as renowned as his original material remains, MELLENCAMP has breathed new life and spirit into various staples of the classic American musical canon as well. A handpicked selection of those covers comprises the aptly titled, Other People’s Stuff.

Culled from seminal albums, compilations, unearthed sessions and documentaries, this record serves as a proud homage to some of the greatest songs in history. For the album, Mellencamp recorded a brand-new version of
“Eyes on the Prize” which was originally performed at The White House. Mellencamp was asked by the Obama administration to perform for the 2010 Celebration of Music from the Civil Rights Movement event. See link to the memorable performance here. Check out “Eyes on The Prize” Here.

About the collection,
MELLENCAMP commented “Most, if not all, of the songs on Other People’s Stuff come from The Great American Songbook.  These are songs that have been recorded over the last 40 years of my career, but had never been put together as one piece of work. Now, they have.”

Check out the full tracklisting below.

The new album sets the stage for his 2019 tour of
“The John Mellencamp Show, which will feature the rock icon’s classics plus some new material. Hailed by critics and fans alike as one of music’s most authentic and crowd-pleasing concert performer, he kicks off the tour February 7th in his home state of Indiana at South Bend’s Morris Performing Arts Center. Yesterday, Mellencamp announced additional dates for the tour which will extend the already lengthy 2019 run with 14 additional shows, making stops across the country. Tickets for most dates will go on sale on Friday, November 9th at 10am local time (see full onsale times below). Produced by AEG Presents, “The John Mellencamp Show” will start promptly at 8pm and will not have an opening act.  Every ticket purchased online will receive a physical copy of Other People’s Stuff.
