Tom Waits "Back in the Crowd" Now Streaming

TOM WAITS second single "Back in the Crowd," from his forthcoming new album Bad As Me can now be heard streaming at TomWaits.com and is available at all the regular digital outlets.

The song features the Spanish Tinge guitar work of both David Hidalgo and Marc Ribot in this sweeping romantic ballad with Waits' doing some of his best crooning to date.

Meanwhile, the UK reviews of the forthcoming album, BAD AS ME, are raving. Mojo deemed the disc "Album of the Month," noting: Bad As Me is alive with some of his greatest yet." Elsewhere, Q claimed: "The thinking artist's thinking artist returns; maverick genius intact..his distinguished career forged out of artistic integrity and fearless adventurism...Here, he plays to his strengths, merging adventurism and experimentation with his former tenderness...Bad As Me is as accessible as it is intelligent. At their heart, these are classic pop songs;" and Uncut which declared: "A swaggering, multifarious tour-de-force...Bad As Me is the sound of a supremely confident artist convening a raucous celebration of his own myth, and is multifariously marvelous."
