HCTF Poll: New John Cale rock album in 2010?


At the shows John Cale played in Australia in January, he revisited and reworked songs from his back catalog while the unreleased new songs like Hey Ray, (A Day in the life of the) Common Cold and Catastrophic were left on the shelf. Only Whaddya Mean By That got an outing.

He did perform two new instrumental pieces (Peace in the Rigging and Glen Gould at Work and Play) as part of the "Eight Hands" show in Hobart, a return to the piano pieces that dominated his musical output during his movie soundtrack endeavours.

His latest studio album blackAcetate was released in 2005. At one time a new album was supposed to happen in November 2008, but it's been quiet since the 2006 Jumbo in tha Modernworld single.

In recent interviews Cale mentioned that he has written 26 (or 27) new songs. Work-in-progress? Demos? Nearly finished? So will 2010 bring a new John Cale album? Vote and comment.
