Something Else! sneak peek: Pat Metheny, What's It All About (2011)

On June 14th, guitarist Pat Metheny will release What’s It All About, an all-acoustic album that’s about as far as you can get, technologically speaking, from last year’s Orchestrion. This incredibly intimate recording features Pat on baritone and 42-string Pikasso guitars, covering a handful of his favorite pop and rock tunes.

Yes, I did say “rock.” “Pipeline,” by the Chantays. I’m not kidding.

So in the meantime, while you’re placing your preorder, check out the title track:
