Joe Walsh has released the lead single off his first solo album in twenty years.
The track, "Analog Man," premiered on Rolling Stone this morning. It's the rock equivalent of Jay-Z's "Death of Autotune," an anti-digital manipulation screed that features Walsh railing against everything from LCD TV screens to e-mail.
"Welcome to cyberspace, I'm lost in a fog," the 64-year-old sings. "The whole world's living in a digital dream / it's not really there, it's all on the screen."
Walsh has one of the most commercially successful careers in rock and roll, doing stints in not one but three popular bands. The guitarist was a part of the James Gang, Barnstorm, and, of course, the Eagles. On Analog Man, Walsh is joined by Ringo Starr (Walsh's brother-in-law) on drums.
