    Default Chickenfoot III - Updated Track Listing

    Got this off Blabbermouth.com just now:

    Looks like some of the track names have changed. "Astral Years" is gone or changed??

    CHICKENFOOT: 'III' Track Listing Revealed - July 13, 2011

    A much-anticipated follow up album to the successful eponymous debut of a rock band packed with successful veterans — guitar hero Joe Satriani, drummer Chad Smith, former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar — has garnered a bevy of buzz and rumors that the band is setting straight today with the official announcement of the album title, full track listing, release date and more: "Chickenfoot III" (not "IV" as previously implied), produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, METALLICA), is set for worldwide release on September 26 by earMUSIC/Edel and from eOne Music in North America in a special 3D designed package. The album's lead single, "Bigfoot", is set for release on August 2.

    "I am very proud of the new album," says lead singer Hagar. "We're calling the album 'Chickenfoot III' because it's so good, the songs are so tight, it's like we jumped right past having to make a second record." He adds, "We've established a real trust, Joe and I, we truly bring out the best in one another, and that spreads to the whole band."

    "Chickenfoot III" features 10 tracks with so many moments of epiphany that one can barely take them all in on first listen. Colossal, stadium-shaking riffs abound on earth-movers such as "Alright, Alright", "Last Temptation", "Bigfoot", and "Lighten Up". Tradition meets innovation on the Nashville pop-tinged "Different Devil", the Delta-blues flavored "Something Going Wrong" and the aching rock ballad "Come Closer". "Come Closer" marks a dramatic twist in that singer Hagar wrote the words first and guitarist Joe Satriani composed the music to suit the lyrics. Elsewhere, CHICKENFOOT tackles issues such as mortality in "Up Next" and the world's economy in "Three and a Half Letters" on hard-as-nails cuts that rock the body while filling one's senses.

    "Chickenfoot III" track listing:

    01. Last Temptation
    02. Alright, Alright
    03. Different Devil
    04. Up Next
    05. Lighten Up
    06. Come Closer
    07. Three and a Half Letters
    08. Bigfoot
    09. Dubai Blues
    10. Something Going Wrong

    Regarding why the chemistry between the CHICKENFOOT bandmembers works so well, Hagar said in a recent interview, "Chemistry is the most magic thing you can have in a band. You can have four of the greatest musicians in the world, and if they don't have chemistry, the music ain't gonna be great. And you've seen it in a lot of other bands out there, in supergroups that have tried to be together over the years. It doesn't always work. CHICKENFOOT works. I don't know why. I think we're all grown up. Nobody cares, no one needs the money, no one's trying to get famous, we're not looking for fame and fortune. We just wanna play the kind of music that we love and we grew up on and continue that type of music and most people aren't doing that."

    Anthony recently said that the album was a "lot heavier" than the band's self-titled 2009 debut, adding, "I think we've really evolved as a band . . . we were a lot more comfortable jamming with each other, and I think we dug a lot deeper. There's a lot more meat to these new songs."

    According to Hagar, the "Chickenfoot III" album cover and first video will both be in 3D.

    "We took a giant step on this record," Hagar told the Artisan News. "It still sounds like CHICKENFOOT, 'cause it's the same guys, but I think the experience that we had together on tour and the success of the last record really opened us up to who and what we are."

    Smith will have two new records out within a month of each other, since the new RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS album, "I'm With You", arrives on August 30. Smith will not tour with CHICKENFOOT this time due to his commitments with his main band.

    Music composed to fit the lyrics? On an album called "III"? It's almost like we've heard something like this before...

    So excited to get this record. The first CD was as good as mid-Sammy years VH in my opinion and if this rocks a little harder it could be the best album put out in a decade.

    I liked "Astral Years!" Not complaining but wish they would've kept that as one.

    I'm glad to hear that they decided to follow up the Delta Blues sound of Bitten By The Wolf with Something Going Wrong.

    To me, the mark of a really good album is when a band explores several different genres on one album, much like Springsteen did on The Rising and the Rolling Stones did on Stripped. This description sounds like they did just that.

    Check out the 4 minute mark of the Satriani on Leno video, when Bill Cosby joins in (remember that). Could this be Dubai Blues? God, I hope so ... it rocks Bill obviously digs Joe too.

    Amazon Germany has listed an interesting Deluxe Edition of the album:

    http://www.amazon.de/Deluxe-inkl-2CD...s_all_1#disc_1

    Looks like it combines the limited edition of "III" and the deluxe edition of "Chickenfoot" with a shirt thrown in - for only EUR 17,99! If I only didn't have the first album already...
