NPR offers first listen to Escovedo’s “Street Songs”

Alejandro National Public Radio is offering a first listen to Alejandro Escovedo’s album “Street Songs of Love” here.

The Austin singer-songwriter-guitarist’s album arrives next Tuesday from his new label, Fantasy Records. Bruce Springsteen (whose manager Jon Landau also handles Escovedo) and Ian Hunter make guest appearances.

“Street Songs” was produced by onetime David Bowie boardmeister Tony Visconti, who also did the honors on Escovedo’s superlative 2008 release “Real Animal.”

Escovedo has one of the finest pedigrees in rock. After a stint with the pioneering San Francisco punk band the Nuns, he joined the cowpunk unit Rank & File (with Chip and Tony Kinman of the Dils) and Austin’s True Believers (with his brother Javier of L.A.’s punk heroes the Zeros). He has recorded several widely praised solo albums, and was named Musician of the Decade by roots mag No Depression.
