On August 23, American singer, songwriter, composer and actor Tom Waits released details on his upcoming 31st album - a 13-track album titled Bad As Me - as well as its title track.
The album, slated for an October 25 release, is also being packaged as a deluxe edition that includes three additional songs: "She Stole the Blush," "Tell Me," and "After You Die."
This will be Waits's first album since Glitter and Doom Live, released in 2009. Prior to that album, he released his 2006 three-disc collection Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards, which earned a Grammy nomination.
Waits played alongside Denzel Washington in the film The Book of Eli and is currently working on a new stage musical with director and long-time collaborator Robert Wilson and playwright Martin McDonagh.
Waits was inducted this year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and he has won Grammy Awards for two albums, Bone Machine and Mule Variations.
