Back on Jan. 21, John Mellencamp added to his rich history of releases with a new studio album, Strictly a One-Eyed Jack.

The gritty record features three collaborations with Bruce Springsteen — somewhat surprisingly, the first time the pair of icons have teamed up in the studio — and a new video for one of them was premiered recently.

Here’s the official clip for “Did You Say Such A Thing”:

This song debuted atop the Classic Rock Radio charts.

“Wasted Days” is another of the Mellencamp + Springsteen tracks, and it was premiered ahead of the album’s release:

Strictly a One-Eyed Jack was written and produced by Mellencamp at his own Belmont Mall Studios in Bloomington, Indiana.

More on the record, per Mellencamp’s recently revamped website:

Rumors of Mellencamp and Springsteen working together have been running rampant for months. In April, Twitter was abuzz after the two men were spotted having lunch together in Bloomington, Ind. (where Mellencamp lives). A month later, Mellencamp officially confirmed the collaboration. “Bruce is singing on the new record and is playing guitar,” he told Billboard during Clive Davis’ virtual 2021 Grammy gala.

Mellencamp’s as-yet-untitled 2022 album will be the the 25th studio LP of his career, following 2018’s covers album Other’s People’s Stuff. Earlier this year, the rocker released a teaser for the release, featuring a new song titled “I Always Lie to Strangers.” At that time, Mellencamp also indicated that he was eyeing a return to touring in 2022.
