John Mellencamp's working on more than his new Strictly a One-Eyed Jack album.
This spring he'll also release a live album and documentary titled The Good Samaritan Tour.
Matthew McConaughey will narrate, chronologizing Mellencamp's historic Free tour in 2000, when he performed on street corners and in public parks across the country.
Mellencamp, who plans to return to the road in 2022, has also posted on his website a performance of "Small Town" recorded in Chicago on October 25th, 2016 during his Plain Spoken Tour.
Mellencamp also plans to resume production on an untitled original play directed by Kathleen Marshall, produced by Scott Landis, and written by Naomi Wallace. You can see a rehearsal clip on his website.
And, lastly, also on the site for your viewing pleasure, are some of his most recent paintings as well as a documentary on his 2009 tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, which also chronicles the making of his No Better Than This album.
