A New Year's video message from legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) can be viewed below.Hughes has been writing material for a new solo album, tentatively due in the spring of 2010. According to Glenn, his latest solo CD, "First Underground Nuclear Kitchen (F.U.N.K.)", is "a benchmark achievement... I have raised the bar. I will be writing all [this] year... compiling all my new songs. Have four or five that are cookin' at the moment... it'll be bootilicious and soul-saturated." "First Underground Nuclear Kitchen (F.U.N.K.)", received its official North American release on October 7 via Blistering Records through Ryko/Warner distribution. The CD came out in Europe in May via Frontiers Records. Produced by Glenn in Los Angeles, after countless hours spent writing in his home studio, "F.U.N.K." is another magnificent statement from the "Voice of Rock." "It is a roots album, it is a true account of my musical heritage but also fearless and multi-dimensional," said Hughes. Once again all drums on the record were played by none other than the great Chad Smith of the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, while Luis Maldonado took care of the majority of the guitars (JJ Marsh and George Nastos only appear on two songs each) and Anders Olinder is on keyboards (with Ed Roth guesting on three songs).
