R&R Americana Charts. Thornton was among the 5 highest debuts for
the week including new albums from Pieta Brown, Billy Joe Shaver, Bruce
Springsteen & the E Street Band, and Bettye Lavette.
recently released Beautiful Door and embarked on a month-long
sold out tour in support of his album. Reviews of the album have touted
it to be his most introspective and prolific to date.
collection of twelve tracks, Beautiful Door is a lyrical, sonic
story about life and death, beginnings and ends. From the title track
“Beautiful Door,” Thornton’s commentary about war,
politics, religion and the life and death of innocent people, to “It’s
Just Me,” told from the perspective of someone who committed suicide,
to “Restin’ Your Soul,” told from the perspective
of the person left behind; from the hopeful “Hearts Like Mine”
to the biographical “Always Countin’” about Obsessive-Compulsive
Disorder; from the loss of young men in war in “Hope For Glory”
to “The Boy Is Gone,” about the loss of a child. Beautiful
Door features an equally diverse blend of roots rock, country,
and folk — the genres Billy Bob Thornton has always loved most.
Joining the singer-songwriter-drummer, who also produced the album,
are co-writer and guitarist Brad Davis, bassist Leland Sklar and keyboardist
Teddy Andreadis. Additionally, Graham Nash adds his signature background
vocals on three tracks.
