Academy Award nominated and Grammy Award winner, Tom Waits has been long considered one of music’s most influential artists because he has continuously created music outside of fad or fashion. With REAL GONE, his off-road adventures are taken into the further beyond. Mixing and mashing: worlds both sonic and ethnic, musical traditions both new and old, and rhythms both mouth-made and sampled from his own instruments, Waits has reached a new pinnacle.

Written and produced by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, his wife and long-time collaborator, REAL GONE features 15 tracks of funk, Jamaican rock-steady, blues both urban and rural, rhythms and melodies both Latin and African and, for the first time, no piano. REAL GONE is a phrase that describes a place, a time beyond reach: a lost mind, a renegade leader, war love sublime, love lost, death, desire, escape. These are the themes of the record inspired by the giddy lust, high voltage, out of orbit times—-a vertigo of splash and trash popular culture spinning alongside the gun to our head and the knife in our heart political times or as “Shake It” says, “I feel like a preacher waving a gun around.”

REAL GONE is also an expression used by musicians to describe the experience of playing and losing yourself to the place where you can finally be found.
