There isn’t really a whole lot of new release news out there. What there is, you have very likely already read about, a lot from here. But there is a very nice piece of release news for fans of Ian Hunter.

On September 4, Slimstyle Records will release the 11–track new album by the ex-Mott The Hoople  front- man, which will – crazily – be called When I’m President. When I’m President should be the expected brilliance from Ian Hunter, who has, over the course of 40 years, provided more than a fair share of memorable songs.

I hope that this little piece of news makes you as pleased as I am. It’s been three years since the release of Man Overboard (2009), so it’s time for some new Ian Hunter.

One thought on “Ian Hunter To Deliver When I’m President (New Album)”
  1. As a huge Mott The Hoople and Ian Hunter fan, this is music to my ears. Never had the opportunity to see Mott The Hoople (although I did see the version of “Mott”), but have had the pleasure of seeing Hunter three times: once with the Hunter-Ronson Band, once on the “Short Back and SIdes” tour and once on the “Al lAmerican Alien Boy” tour. Hunter is a grossly under-recognized and underappreciated artist. I can still remember when I first heard “Ships” in an actual elevator as “elevator music”.

    Matt- Keep up the great work. MusicTap is a first-thing in the morning read for me on a daily basis…
