When you hear favorite songs like Hey Soul Sister, Drops Of Jupiter, and even Calling All Angels by the Grammy winning band Train, it’s hard not to tap your foot and sing along. If you’re a fan like I am, then I’m guessing you’ll also be as excited as I was to hear that their 7th studio album Bulletproof Picasso is being released on September 16th!
You may have already heard the album’s first single, Angel In Blue Jeans on the radio! It’s already soared to the Top 15 of Triple A and Adult Top 40 radio in only a month, joining the band’s successful arsenal of other radio-embraced singles throughout their two-decade career.
Bulletproof Picasso is available now on iTunes and Amazon for pre-order.
I’ve listened to the entire Bulletproof Picasso album several times through now. As with most albums, there are always songs that stand out right away. My current favorites are Angel in Blue Jeans, I Will Remember and Don’t Grow Up So Fast. I think that I can connect to these two the most emotionally. That being said, with the the music styling and lyrical artistry that Train always seems to deliver, several are sure to become chart toppers right up there with Meet Virginia and Hey Soul Sister!
