About Uncle Kracker
You know him as Kid Rock's quasi side-kick and hitmaker of tracks like "Follow Me," "Drift Away" and "Smile." But Uncle Kracker had been out of the spotlight for the last few years, at least as far as working for a major label. But that changed recently when he inked a new deal with Lava/Republic Records, reuniting him with Jason Flom, who brought him to Lava/Atlantic for the first time back in 1999.
Yes, it's true. Kracker is now working on a new album he hopes to have out before the end of the year. "It feels good," he recently told Billboard. "It's a little bit of a twist; the same guy who signed me 15 years ago. It's a little weird, but it feels good to talk with somebody who knows what they're talking about and knows what they wants and knows what you're about, too. It feels like everybody's on the same page again. It's been a long time since I've had that."
Kracker's first single for Lava/Atlantic this time around is "Endlessly," but he says the upcoming album is a mixed bag of everything from pop to country to blues. He wants to worry about "what feels good, what sounds good."
While he's putting the finishing touches on the upcoming project, Kracker has been out on the road as part of Mark McGrath's Under The Sun Tour. It wrapped on August 13 in Paso Robles, Calif., while Kracker also went on to play the New York State Fair and other solo dates through the end of summer and into fall.
