    From the PledgeMusic pre-order page:

    Re-Covered is a collection of my reinterpretations of songs that I wrote for and with other artists. My vision for the album is for it to be a combination of big hits and songs that I always wished were big hits, but weren’t. What you’ll hear on the tracks is me and some of my favorite musicians playing the songs live at United Studios in Hollywood. We went straight to tape. Producer Mike Viola, the band and I all pushed each other to create new vibes for the songs, and some of the performances are radically different from the original recordings. My hope is that these new versions will shed new light on both the familiar hits and the less-familiar gems.

    There's no track list or release date yet, at least not that I could find.

    Some of my favorite songs he's written for or with other artists:

    "Easy Silence" and "Not Ready To Make Nice" by The Dixie Chicks
    "Tremendous Brunettes" and "I Hear the Bells" by Mike Doughty
    "Steve McQueen" by Brian Fallon
    "My Friend the Devil" by Audra Mae & the Almighty Sound
    "Say So" by Sara Watkins
    "Help Me Find the Way" by The Twilight Hours
  4. I hope "Treacherous" and "Come Back... Be Here" is on there.

    Also it's good. His voice has a way of making everything sound so thoughtful.
