DAVE MASON--Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and TRAFFIC co-founding member--has announced theMay 13 release his new album, FUTURE'S PAST (Something Music/MRI) featuring new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. Renowned for suchTraffic hits as "Feelin' Alright" (covered by Joe Cocker) and "Hole In My Shoe" plus his solo signature tracks "We Just Disagree" and "Only You Know and I Know," MASON's acclaimed solo career continues to flourish as he tours the U.S. with his new project billed as "DAVE MASON'S TRAFFIC JAM."
The cover art illustration for FUTURE'S PAST was done by none other than Mr. Graham Nash from a photo he made of DAVE while at Nash's place in Hawaii.
Of the new release, MASON says, "There is a great version of 'Dear Mr. Fantasy' that is kind of a re-write. There is a version of 'World in Changes' that is absolutely nothing like the original and there is a great live version that is absolutely beautiful of 'Sad and Deep as You.' There are two or three songs that were on a CD called 26 Letters 12 Notes that I did seven years ago, a Robert Johnson song, 'Come On in My Kitchen' and a brand new song called 'That's Freedom.'"
As part of a collaboration with Pledge Music, they are making a number of limited-edition items available for fans including vinyl, t-shirts, laminates, signed and numbered CDs and more. Check it out here: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/davemason
