How To Become Clairvoyant, his new album, saw the respected Band founder debut at the highest chart position of his distinguished solo career--and the reviews, from all quarters, uniformly gushed with enthusiasm. And rightly so.
Filled with an impressive array of musicians from all musical spheres--including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Trent Reznor, Rom Morello and Robert Randolph among others--the album was something of a thematic break for Robertson: It was, unusually for him, surprisingly autobiographical. Additionally, significant collaboration with Clapton, whom Robertson has long known, added some textures and shape that might surprise some longtime listeners. All told, it a bold, sonically adventurous record that marks a highpoint for a career that remains one of the most truly legendary in the world of popular music.http://www.robbie-robertson.com/how-to-become-clairvoyant-collectors-edition/
Yahoo! Music was thrilled to have the man himself come visit our Santa Monica studios last week, where he graciously shared details about the new album, his motivation for creating the deluxe Collector's Set, and his overall take on the contemporary music scene--which was refreshing, wise, and about what you'd expect from a man whose impact on contemporary music continues to be felt daily. See for yourself.
