Hayes Carll looks for album in '08
Friday, November 2, 2007
– Hayes Carll has been signed to the Lost Highway Records for several years without any new music coming out. But Carll said Friday at the Americana Music Conference that he is hoping to release a new disc in March 2008.
Carll said he is going back into the studio Saturday to record one more song with producer Brad Jones. He said he has recorded between 12 and 14 songs, although he was looking to have about 10 songs on the release.
Carll said part of the reason for the delay in releasing new music was "I didn't have all the songs together."
The title of the new disc has yet to be determined.
Carll previously recorded "Little Rock" for his own label in 2005 and "Flowers and Liquor" for Compadre Records in 2002.

A recent Grammy nomination, a number of chart triumphs and some highly impressive accolades from the public and pundits alike suggest that Carll might be doing far better than he lets on. Nevertheless, the dourly named "Lovers and Leavers" ...
The Houston-bred, Austin-based Hayes Carll is a true Texas troubadour. He stocks his four full-length (and second for Lost Highway) with character-rich tales full of humor and heartache. While there is nothing radically new in this set of shaggy dog songs, Carll continues to reveal his terrific way with words, making his music come vibrantly to life.
There's a sense of Carll (or at least characters) pondering growing up and looking for something more out of life throughout this disc. ...
