NEW YORK (Artemis Records) - On October 19th, Artemis Records is set to release a very special tribute album to the late Warren Zevon
entitled ENJOY EVERY SANDWICH: THE SONGS OF WARREN ZEVON.
The album features many of Zevon's best-known songs performed by a stunning array of artists including Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Adam Sandler, Don Henley, The Pixies
and many more.
Also included are two never-before-released Zevon-penned songs: "Studebaker" performed by Zevon's son, Jordan Zevon with background vocals provided by Wallflowers' Jakob Dylan, and "The Wind" performed by Billy Bob Thornton. Legendary arranger Van Dyke Parks adds string arrangements to the beautiful "Keep Me In Your Heart", performed by Jorge Calderon and Jennifer Warnes.
Bruce Springsteen pays homage to his late friend during the spoken introduction to his live track contribution, "My Ride's Here", calling Zevon "one of the great, great Ameican songwriters".
ENJOY EVERY SANDWICH: THE SONGS OF WARREN ZEVON is co-executive produced by Jorge Calderon and Jordan Zevon. Calderon co-produced and co-wrote Warren Zevon's final album, the two-time Grammy-winning, gold-certified THE WIND. Calderon commented "This record is a celebration of Warren Zevon's music, and Warren, being a true artist's artist, attracted some of the best folks in contemporary music thus making it a very special party".
Jordan Zevon added "I'm so proud of this record and the diverse line-up of artists that participated. Hearing Dad's songs voiced by such an eclectic collection of artists reminds you of what a brilliant songwriter he was". Warren Zevon passed away on September 7th, 2003.
