John Mellencamp released his 25th studio album Strictly a One-Eyed Jack on January 21.

He told the Wall Street Journal:

“I still make albums, even though there’s not a lot of demand for albums in today’s singles world. I still look at albums as a distinctive piece of work, not just a bunch of songs.”

Mellencamp also told Forbes:

“I kind of looked at it when I was putting it together as this is one guys speaking. So all the songs are really one guy speaking, as opposed to there’s this song and that song, and this song and that song. It’s just one guy talking about his life, his future, his self.”

After his many years of making music, the 70-year-old artist feels this album isn’t really about him at all and shares during his iHeartRadio ICONS show:

“I’ve written a lot of songs and everything passes through me, but I’m just a vehicle.”

“This record really isn’t about me. The songs aren’t about me. I’ve written, like, 350 songs, I’m not that interesting of a guy.”

He said about writing songs:

“You have to be an observer. I’m a good observer. I’m a good listener. I watch people and I hear what they say. So, this album says about me what it says about most everyone—who we really are and what we allow people to see.”
