Acclaimed musician and songwriter John Hiatt will release his 21st studio album, Mystic Pinball, on Sept. 25, a few weeks after his return to Ravinia for an Aug. 26 concert featuring special guest Steve Earle. Called “one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years” by the Los Angeles Times, Hiatt specializes in character studies with twisting storylines and wry humor. The first single, “We’re Alright Now,” is a blues-driven, gospel song available to hear today at www.americansongwriter.com. Mystic Pinball will be available as both a CD and on limited edition 180-gram vinyl. Pre-order a copy of Mystic Pinball from Ravinia Gifts.
