John Mellencamp streams new album Orpheus Descending

John Mellencamp is streaming his new album, “Orpheus Descending”, in sync with its June 16 release.

The rocker recorded and produced the 11-song project at his own Belmont Mall Studio in Indiana.

Mellencamp is about to wrap up his extensive 77-date “Live and In Person 2023” North American tour, with a few remaining dates through June 27.

The tour has been getting rave reviews, with LA Weekly praising, “Mellencamp strode out looking for all the world like a Brando or a Paul Newman or a James Dean—a Misfit who managed to find his place in the world through his music,” while the Dallas Observer describes that the show “made it clear Mellencamp is a true music legend, and from the sound of it, one that will continue to be making music for a long time to come.”

“Orpheus Descending” marks the follow-up to 2022’s “Strictly A One-Eyed Jack”, which featured multiple songs co-written with and featuring Bruce Springsteen.
