John Mellencamp is releasing his brand new album, Strictly A One-Eyed Jack, later this week, and fans will be able to celebrate the music, and the rocker's impressive career, during his exclusive iHeartRadio ICONS show on the album's release day, January 21st.
Strictly A One-Eyed Jack follows Mellencamp's 2017 album Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, and his live album The Good Samaritan Tour 2000, released in August 2021. The new album showcases twelve new songs, including two tracks with Bruce Springsteen ("Wasted Days" and "A Life Full of Rain"). In a radio interview, Mellencamp explained of his relationship with Springsteen, "I would consider Bruce now, one of my better friends in the music business. Bruce and I talk quite a bit. I think he and I relate to each other because we’ve had similar experiences of growing up in a small town. Starting out, big band leaders. … He’s like my big brother now."
During the exclusive iHeartRadio ICONS show, Mellencamp will perform some of his new songs live, as well as fan favorites, and open up about Strictly A One-Eyed Jack and more during an intimate Q&A hosted by iHeartRadio's Jim Kerr.
