Actually, two of the songs on next month's new Cowboy Junkies album are going to be new, but the rest are covers, although - to be honest - the choices (Lennon, Dylan, U2) are somewhat pedestrian and disappointing. Especially given their field of concern:

The Junkies instructed one another to "bring two or three songs, written by others and the themes of the songs had to relate to war, violence, fear, greed, ignorance, loss." In doing so, their goal was "to create our own small document of hope."

Nothing, you'll note, from We Don't Want Your Fucking War.

Still, we're sure it'll sound lovely.

Early 21st century Blues is available for pre-order now.
