Erstwhile
BLURT blogger Todd Snider has taken on Conservative Christians, hippies,
Republicans, and frat boys. Now the renegade songwriter (some would say
smartass, and we think the man himself would agree) shows us how to get through
this economic crisis with ‘The Excitement
Plan’
(out June 9th on Yep Roc). The album features GRAMMY-winning producer
Don Was (Bob Dyan, Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt) and a guest appearance by Loretta
Lynn.

‘The Excitement Plan’ is “an old gypsy term” Snider adopted
from his father. He explains, “I know right now that times are hard for
all of us and that new songs from a folk singer are not at the top of so many
grocery lists but these twelve songs are different. These twelve songs can be
part of your solution. Just give them a chance. Take them in. Use ’em to help
you appreciate your girl if you still got one, and/or your job if you still got
one. Trust them, trust me and I promise you as god is my witness sometime here
in the next sixty to ninety days we will be layin ’em in the sweet peas.”
