It’s times like this I wish I’d been making a chart: After a year that’s seen the return of Alice in Chains, TLC, and Blink 182; new albums from Third Eye Blind, Better Than Ezra, Vertical Horizon, Collective Soul, and Sugar Ray; and the Nashville ascendancy of one Darius “Hootie” Rucker, I honestly didn’t think there was anywhere else for the ’90s revival to go. Well, color me badd, people, cause according to the Tennessean, Smash Mouth lead singer Steve Harwell has recorded a country album. Hey now, you remember Steve: he’s an all-star! The new album is tentatively titled All the Way Gone, and as Harwell tells the Tennessean, “It’s kind of an alternative country. I think it’s what people have been waiting to hear.”
Is it, Mixers? Are you a believer? Or does this news just make Harvey Danger’s decision to call it quits like a thousand percent more respectable?
