"Gov't mule is back with Shout!,their first studio album in four years.In an unprecedented twist and gift to their fans,a special bonus CD is included.The bonus disc is the 11 tracks from the album...but with each track sung by a different world class special guest and friend of the band.Shout is the band's first ever album to be released on Blue Note Records. Frontman Warren Haynes cites his love for jazz music,especially Blue Note recordings,as one of the reasons Gov't Mule chose to sign with Blue Note.Hayne's said it's those kind of recordings that have convinced all of us in Gov't Mule that the only way to capture improvisational music in the studio is to record as 'live' as possible.We are truly honored to be part of the Blue Note roster."

1. World boss
2.No reward
3.Whisper in your soul
4.Captured
5. Scared to live
6.Stoop so low
7.Forsaken savior
8.Done got wise
9.When the world gets small
10.Funny little tragedy
11.Bring on the music

Am looking forward to see who the special guests are.

Now available for pre-order on Amazon.com

Looking forward to hearing new Mule studio material. However, and I may be in the minority when I say this, the new tunes I heard live at Mountain Jam a month ago just didn't grab me like I'd hoped. I was so close to the stage that I was able to watch Warren reading the lyrics as he sang them so I suspect the tunes they played that night hadn't been performed live too often.

I would add that many of the people I spoke to the next day also commented that Mule's second set (which is when they performed most of the new tunes they played that night) just didn't have the spark and energy usually associated with Mule. I can't describe it, but the set seemed lackluster to me. Was it the new material? Perhaps....

Chain ~ we certainly may have rubbed elbows on the rail at the mountain ~ I secured a spot early in the day, even stood through the lumineers to not risk losing it
I like a lot of the new material but I can fully understand what you're saying ~ I guess we learn it as it becomes available & take it whichever direction from that point, as with any new stuff we're given. I'm truly thankful for new material being added to their already awesome library of originals & covers! the bonus disc with various guests is a very cool & unique idea!
I'm not really enamored by "world boss" although I've heard it several times ~ but I don't dislike it either. I really, sincerely love, love, love "Captured" it is such a beautifully worded songs with some powerful ballad type melodies intertwined ~ then throw in the meaning behind the song, and I am captured completely!

Hopefully disc 2 with the special guests will spice up the new material.

Doesn't Warren and Steph still own/run Evil Teen Records? By a Thread was released on Evil Teen. What's the advantage of a switch to an outside label?

Maybe the prestigious Blue Note label has a better distribution network and maybe the promotional campaign is financed by Blue Note in stead of being paid out of their own (Evil Teen) pocket. Just wild guesses.

I hope Evil Teen continues with Benefit Concert releases from the XMAS jams.

So far I think I have heard 5 of the 11 songs live. Two of them I really, really love. Those two are 'World Boss' and 'Captured'. The other three I don't remember the names of but two of them weren't very memorable at least from one listen and the third that they opened the second set at the Ives show with I didn't like at all. It was a reggae song and I am just not into Mule playing full out reggae songs. I like when they incorporate little bits of reggae into rock songs but I just am not into when they play songs that are completely reggae.
