Get Tom Waits tracks for free

Download tasters from new 3CD album

Tom Waits fans can download three tracks from his forthcoming album for free.

The veteran singer is releasing a 3CD set called ‘Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards’ on November 20. However, one song from each of the CDs will be available on the website throughout October.

From next week (October 3), fans will be able to download ‘Bottom Of The World’ – a track taken from the ‘Brawlers’ CD – and ‘You Can Never Hold Back Spring’ from ‘Bawlers’.

They will be followed by ‘Road to Peace’, a track from ‘Brawlers’, on October 17.

A fourth ‘Orphans’ track, ‘Long Way Home’, will be available as a digital download single on October 23.

‘Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards’ is a 54-song set, 30 of which are new. The set is a limited edition which comes complete with a 94-page booklet. Once the initial pressing has been sold, the set will never again be available in this format.

The collection includes ‘interpretations’ of songs by The Ramones, Daniel Johnston, Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brecht, Leadbelly, Sparklehorse, Charles Bukowski and Jack Kerouac.

Clips of each of the songs on the three CDs will be streamed, also on, starting with ‘Bawlers’ on October 24, and followed by ‘Brawlers’ on October 31 and ‘Bastards’ on November 7. Each will be on the website for one week only.
