It's always a big deal when new stuff drops from the gravelly throat of Sonoma County-based rocker, bluesman, and enigma Tom Waits. And it looks like he may be about to release his first new music in seven years.
Yesterday, Waits' label sent out a very cryptic e-mail hinting that something interesting would be happening at his website next week:
There have been rumblings and rumors. New music from Tom Waits, you say?
Come to TomWaits.com on Tuesday August 23rd, and Mr. Waits himself will
set the record straight.
