Now we know the meaning of the title. The world is hanging by a thread. Kinda reminds me of the Life Before Insanity artwork. I bet it's the same artist.

It looks to me more like the man is hanging by a thread and the thread circles the world. While it looks to be fashioned like a noose, at least it is around his wrist and not his neck.

Someone said the art work is reminiscent of the Life Before Insanity cd. I agree and it looks like the Deja Voodoo art too to me.

Anyway, can't wait for the release of this new Mule cd.

Danny Louis has become an integral part of Gov't Mule and their sound now IMO. Loved old school Mule but love the new Mule just as much.

I gotta say, Mule wouldn't legitimately be able to move forward without keys at this point. Danny has grown on me just fine.

Ditto for me. Where's the love for Danny? I'm not sure I can fathom Mule without him at this point.

Gov’t Mule: Bluesy jam band readies new album

By By Don Thrasher, Contributing Writer 7:55 PM Thursday, July 9, 2009

Warren Haynes has been the guitarist of choice for acts such as The Allman Brothers Band and The Dead for years, but he first turned heads in 1980 as the 20-year-old phenom in David Allan Coe’s band. Today, his main focus is on his hotshot band, Gov’t Mule, but he still performs regularly with the Allmans and Dead.

“I really enjoy my job,” Haynes said last week during some rare downtime at home in Manhattan. “It’s what I love to do so that makes it easier. There are a lot of opportunities available right now that I can’t really say no to. I don’t want to look back years later and go, ‘Oh, yeah I coulda done that but I said no.’ It’s all stuff that’s really enjoyable.

“I’ve definitely been fortunate to have worked with a lot of wonderful people through the years,” he continued. “I think each person or situation, however you want to look at it, influences what we do next, what I do next. There’s always going to be some unspoken thing that happens that influences where you go next.”

Gov’t Mule, which formed in 1994, is comprised of Haynes (vocals, guitar), Matt Abts (drums), Danny Louis (keyboards) and newest member Jorgen Carlsson (bass), who joined the band last summer. The bluesy jam band’s new album, “By a Thread,” hits stores July 28. The bulk of the tracks were recorded at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Recording Studio outside of Austin, Texas.

“We have a new bass player so it was important to us to get in the studio right away with Jorgen and start working with that chemistry,” Haynes said. “It proved to be a very cathartic decision. We were all really inspired so a lot of new songs were written while we were there. We captured the spirit of the band with Jorgen more so than I even expected.

“In some ways it’s similar to what we’ve done in the past but we feel like we’re breaking new ground and heading into some new directions we’ve never explored,” he added.

Gov’t Mule performs at Fraze Pavilion on Saturday, July 11.

Sorry, Tarzan, I haven't been able to find any info on the artist. But I did take a closer look at the artwork and have noticed at least three more hanging dudes. Anyone else see them? There is also a T and an 8 that I see. Enigmatic cover, for sure...

Warren Haynes Hits the Studio for Gov’t Mule LP, Soulful Solo Disc
by David Browne

7/16/09, 12:49 pm EST

“Can we turn this up to 100 dBs?” Warren Haynes asks an engineer at a New York studio, where the eighth studio album by his band Gov’t Mule is being mastered. The technician complies, and “Frozen Fear” — a simmering, R&B-flavored track — erupts out the speakers.

The song is the result of what the guitarist calls “a very cathartic, creative month” this past January. After realizing how busy he would be in 2009 — thanks to a spring tour as part of the reunited Dead, followed by summer and fall shows with the Allman Brothers Band — Haynes booked time at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Studio in Austin right after Christmas. “We thought, ‘It’s gonna be a busy year, let’s get started with the new record right away,’” he says.

What emerged were, in fact, two records. The current lineup of Gov’t Mule — guitarist-vocalist Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, keyboardist Danny Lewis, and new Swedish bass player Jorgen Carlsson — laid down over a dozen tracks for By a Thread, the band’s first album of new material in three years. The tracks range from Southern-fried rockers like “Stepping Lightly” and “Any Open Window” (”very Hendrixy,” Haynes says) to high-powered country (”Gordon Jones,” about a fictitious war profiteer) and folk (an electric version of the traditional “Railroad Boy”).

The band also recorded two different versions of another Haynes original, “Broke Down on the Brazos” — one featuring guitar dueling between Haynes and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, and another (with horns) that reminds Haynes of Parliament-Funkadelic. “We didn’t want to be pigeonholed as a rock band,” says Haynes, “because we have so many influences.” Since Gov’t Mule are without a label after breaking with ATO, Haynes paid for the sessions himself and is in the process of shopping the record to a new label.

Just before the start of the Mule sessions, Haynes also cut what he calls “the record I’ve been wanting to make for a long time.” Still untitled, the album — recorded at the same Austin studio — is Haynes’ nod to vintage soul and R&B, complete with a backup band that included Meters bassist George Porter Jr. and keyboardists Ivan Neville and Faces founder Ian McLagan.

Haynes knows the results may throw Deadheads and Allmans fans for a loop. “In some ways we are part of the jam band community,” he says. “But there’s also a part of that community that’s a little close-minded and should accept a lot more genres of music than it does.”

Meaning his solo album won’t have as many of the extended guitar workouts Haynes is renowned for? “In my mind, it might have started out that way,” he chuckles. “But by the time we made the record, there’s plenty of guitar solos!”

Warren Haynes In Musical Overdrive With Gov't Mule, Allmans, Dead

July 17, 2009 11:49 AM ET
Gary Graff, Detroit

Thanks to tours with The Dead and the Allman Brothers Band, a new Gov't Mule album and tour and a planned solo album, Warren Haynes is having his busiest year ever -- and is enjoying it immensely.

"I think it's a matter of having opportunities that are available," Haynes tells Billboard.com. "Gov't Mule is a laboratory I need to keep going all the time. The Allman Brothers...has been amazing, but I know at some point it's going to slow down, and the same with The Dead. I don't expect to always be this busy, but I don't want to look back a few years from now and go, 'Yeah, they asked me to do a Dead tour but I was too busy.' "

Haynes is currently on the road with Gov't Mule, though the band has pushed the release of its new album, "By A Thread," back from its original July 28 release (a new date is pending). The quartet recorded its first studio set since 2006's "High & Mighty" at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studio in Texas, with ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons guesting on the track "Broke Down on the Brazos." It also marks the group's first studio recording with bassist Jorgen Carlsson, who joined the Mule in 2008.

"I had a lot of songs already written for the record, but we wrote three or four songs in the studio and that's something very different for us," Haynes reports. "We might get one new song written in the studio per record if we're lucky, but never three or four. There's just something fresh about what's going on in the band; it's a very transitional period, but everybody is really excited."

Haynes is also enthused about the eventual release of a solo album he recorded that he says "hearkens back to my earliest influences...soul music but it also kind of sounds like when Freddie King and B.B. King and Albert King did their more crossover records, where they were mixing funk and soul with blues." Haynes recorded the album with Meters bassist George Porter, Jr., Ivan Neville and Ian McLagan on keyboardist and Ron Holloway on saxophone. Neville and Ruthie Foster sing, along with Haynes.

"I'm really excited about it," says Haynes, who hasn't yet set a release date for the solo set. "I did two records back to back, solo and Gov't Mule, both at the same studio with Gordie Johnson co-producing, but they couldn't sound more different. It's really bizarre."

As for his other concerns, Haynes says he's confident the Dead is "going to do some more," especially with the group's 45th anniversary in 2010. And the Allmans, he says are "really clicking right now" as the group prepares for a run of dates in mid-August. The band is also "talking" about recording: "We have maybe half of a record written now, maybe even more than half," Haynes reports, adding that there are no concrete studio plans yet.
