Label: Chris Isaak
His Showtime series took Chris Isaak away from music for long stretches. Now, a music talk show on Bio is speeding up his first release of all-new material in nearly a decade. This time out, Isaak combines a modern Nashville rock sheen with the kind of timeless juke-joint feeling sadly absent from Always Got Tonight. "Breaking Apart" gets recast as a noir ballad with Trisha Yearwood, while old fans will like "We've Got Tomorrow" and "Big Wide Wonderful World." Ever industrious, Isaak even illustrated the CD cover.
