As the weather warms and summer rapidly approaches, we have an early three horse race for the most bizarre release of the season. Of course, should Kevin Federline find a label to distribute Papazao: all bets are off.
Coming quickly out of the gate, hotel heiress Paris Hilton plans to release her first single, the reggae-influenced "Stars Are Blind." The single should precede Hilton's still untitled debut album, which is rumored to contain a cover of Rod Stewart's disco-era "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy." Hilton promises that the album will be a mix of reggae, pop and hip-hop; a sure recipe for success.
Action star Steven Seagal has recorded a blues album, Mojo Priest. Containing covers of "Hoochie Coochie Man," "Dust My Broom" and the strangely titled track "Talk To My Ass," Seagal will kick off a three week tour with a show at the Fillmore in San Francisco, CA. Most surprising, this is Seagal's second album.
The dark horse in this race may very well be ESPN baseball pundit Peter Gammons, who will release his first album Never Slow Down, Never Grow Old. Gammons, who sings and plays guitar, is joined by notable musicians as George Thorogood and Juliana Hatfield as well as some fantastic baseball players like Bronson Arroyo and Jonathan Papelbon. Unlike Hilton and Seagal, Gammons' efforts will benefit charity, with proceeds going to the Foundation To Be Named Later to help disadvantaged kids.
