Glenn Campbell takes on Velvet Undergound, Replacements, Travis, Green Day

The “Rhinestone Cowboy” himself has put together a contemporary covers album entitled Meet Glen Campbell. Here is a trailer for the album. Since when do albums have trailers? What day is it?

I definitely think it’s a cool concept, but it’s been done before (see Jonny Cash), and I’m pretty sure the Cash man actually chose the songs himself. But at least he looks like a homeless person during a quarter of the video (seriously, what’s with the half-way-on-his-head beanie and way too appropriately matching sweatshirts?) Did they pull him out of a dumpster, put clothes on him, play him some songs, hand him a guitar, and tell him to make a record?

“Good Riddance”:

Tracklist:
01 “Sing” (Travis)
02 “Walls” (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)
03 “Angel Dream” (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)
04 “Times Like These” (Foo Fighters)
05 “These Days” (Jackson Browne)
06 “Sadly Beautiful” (The Replacements)
07 “All I Want Is You” (U2)
