Tom Waits announces Letterman & Daily Show appearances!

TOM WAITS’ ‘ORPHANS’ FIND A HOME ON ‘LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN’ AND ‘THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART’ NOVEMBER 27 AND 28

EARLY BUZZ FROM UK PRESS: 5-STAR ‘MOJO INSTANT CLASSIC’ AND 5-STARS FROM UNCUT

Following the release of his new 3 CD set ORPHANS: BRAWLERS, BAWLERS AND BASTARDS (Nov. 21 on Anti-), great American performer and songwriter TOM WAITS takes to the stage and the easy chair as a performer and guest on the Late Show with David Letterman (Monday, November 27), and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (Tuesday, November 28).

The 56-track ORPHANS includes 30 new recordings, plus two dozen more songs taken from collaborations with artists in film, literature, and music – equaling over three hours of rare and never-before heard music – along with a 94-page booklet. Early word from the admiring British press is nothing short of fervent:

“Masterpiece isn't the right word for such a profusion of profound delights...exhibition is better…With his unfussy brushstrokes, umber hues, and humanely honest delight in warts and all, he is the Rembrandt of modern music,” reads Mojo’s 5-star review, crowning the set a “Mojo Instant Classic.”

No less enthusiastic, Uncut also gives the collection 5 stars, reveling in “The world of Waits’ Orphans.”
