The 14-track album was produced by T Bone Burnett and is the first of its kind employing the ΧΟΔΕ (CODE) format, a proprietary audio technology that creates high-definition audio files that are virtually indistinguishable from the original master tapes.
Critical response for Life, Death, Love and Freedom has been outstanding. Rolling Stone’s Mark Kemp wrote, “Mellencamp teamed up with producer T Bone Burnett to create a whole new sound — a set of textured, atmospheric folk and country blues that adds up to one of the most compelling albums of Mellencamp’s career.” It’s definitely a cutting edge CD and one that should be in your collection as well.
Mellencamp recently completed performances on the Late Show with David Letterman and the CBS Early Show in Daley Plaza, Chicago. Mellancamp was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. He received the ASCAP Foundation’s Champion Award for his outstanding use of music in the service of humanity in December, 2007.
Mellencamp kicked off a month long tour in support of the new release on July 8, 2008. Later this year Mellencamp and his band will be touring throughout Australia and New Zealand for the first time in 16 years.
