UPDATE: I’m told Julian attended Musicares on Friday night with BMG but hasn’t signed with them officially. A source says he’s still “exploring options.” Whatever label he’s on, can”t wait to hear the music!
MONDAY: Here’s some good music news: Julian Lennon is getting ready to release some new music.
Lennon’s first new album since 2011’s “Everything Changes” will come from BMG Music, which has built a strong catalog of new releases from legacy artists.
Julian, of course, had massive hits in 1984 with his debut album called “Valotte.” The title track and “Too Late for Goodbyes” are part of the classic rock canon. He’s had scattershot radio hits over the last 35 years, but concentrates mostly on his art and photography career.
Julian is the eldest son of beloved late Beatle John Lennon and wife Cynthia Lennon. When he was a child, Paul McCartney wrote “Hey Jude” for him as “Hey Jules,” but changed the title for the final version.
All Beatles fans would love to see a concert with Julian, half brother Sean Lennon, Dhani Harrison, Zac Starkey, and James McCartney. We can only dream. But their solo projects are all incredibly worthy. Julian is also one of the nicest people you could meet. I hope he puts on some shows to back the release!
