New Tom Waits! Are there happier words? Check out the first single and title track from Bad As Me, Waits' first studio album since the 2006 rarities compilation, Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards. The album comes out on October 25th, and it's sounding promising, if the song — a pounding groove featuring characteristically piquant lyrics and a wide range of Waitsian vocal stylings — is any indication.
While you're at it, you can watch this promotional video, in which a cantankerous Waits finds a totally appropriate way to respond to the internet age's total lack of mystery. Tom Waits is the best.
