Train fans will be happy to know that their newest album, Bulletproof Picasso was released today. This is the 7th album from the San Francisco based Grammy winning band, and it does not disappoint.
Bulletproof Picasso has a great collection of songs from the catchy up beat track 1 song, "Cadillac Cadillac" to the poignant final track, "Don't Grow Up So Fast" a plea to youth to stay young as long as possible, "you don't want to know what I know, yet. Don't grow up too fast."
The first single from the album is "Angel in Blue Jeans". The video for this was shot in the desert with the always awesome, and super cool, Danny Trejo who you might recognize from his many film roles. I think the video is a perfect representation of this song's gritty western rock feel.
I would expect to see a lot of hit singles come from this album because not only do the songs have great lyrics and catchy melodies, but more importantly, they connect with the human emotion. One of my favorite songs on Bulletproof Picasso is "I'm Drinking Tonight". It cries out for release from the pain of heartbreak with the lyric "the only thing stronger than you is whiskey...I hope the poison's the cure." It is passionate songs like this that make this a really cool album from Train.
Bulletproof Picasso is available now on iTunes and Amazon
