New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Tommy McLain has unveiled a collection of new music four decades in the making today with the release of his highly-anticipated studio album I Ran Down Every Dream on Yep Roc Records. Featuring an eclectic and illustrious group of fans and friends supporting him, the 13-song "tour-de-force" (New Orleans Advocate) finds 82-year-old McLain looking back at a remarkable life in music while forging ahead as a true soul survivor. Throughout I Ran Down Every Dream, McLain unleashes a "voice that still sounds strong as ever" (MOJO) while displaying a "wily grace and humor" (New York Times) in a way only a lifetime of experience allows (McLain has outlasted three devastating Louisiana hurricanes, a major heart attack and a house fire in recent years alone).

McLain's first album release since 1979 also enshrines many friends gone too soon, like his fellow "swamp pop" luminary Warren Storm (whose drums can be heard throughout I Ran Down Every Dream), Louisiana songwriting legend Bobby Charles (who Tommy honors with a stunning cover of his song "I Hope"), and the late Austin guitar legend Denny Freeman.

As is only fitting for McLain, he will celebrate I Ran Down Every Dream with a series of Louisiana release events in September, including shows with Adcock in New Orleans (September 7 and 8 at Hotel Peter and Paul), Lafayette (September 9 at Vermilionville) and Crowley (September 10 at the Grand Opera House). He'll also bring the new record to Nashville next month for a performance and featured panel about I Ran Down Every Dream at AmericanaFest 2022. Earlier this year, McLain embarked on his first cross-country tour in decades with Nick Lowe - and returned to JazzFest with a series of headline-making shows alongside Elvis Costello and Lucinda Williams. He'll continue to bring the new album around the world throughout 2022 and beyond, with more dates to-be-announced soon.
