Addicted To Black


Don McLean is one of America's most enduring singer-songwriters and is forever associated with his classic hits 'American Pie' and 'Vincent (Starry Starry Night)'. Since first hitting the charts in 1971, Don has amassed over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and, in 2004, was inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame. Addicted To Black is a new album of 11 original songs, excepting a co-write with one W. Shakespeare, and Don says this will be his last. On several tracks McLean adopts his morose side with lyrics about death and remembrance. "I don't know why I have this dark side to me," says McLean of the subject matter. "It's manifested itself in many of the songs that I've written. I'm not an unhappy person, I guess. Maybe I am. I don't know. But I do relate to people who have heartache." Appropriately, he even decorates the disc on the back cover with his first promotional photo, taken in 1964."I put it on there because that's the beginning and the song talks a lot about the end," says McLean. "I'm winding down. I'm doing my shows, and I don't know how many years I'll do that. And then I'll retire."
