02/16/2017 - John Mellencamp’s 23rd full-length album, Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, featuring Carlene Carter, returns Mellencamp to the musical eclecticism that is, itself, a reflection of his wide-ranging musings on life. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies showcases a poet who has wisely used the years between youth and the present day to become an absolute of master of songwriting and interpretation. That passion and experience resonates most beautifully in this showcase of his music. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies is set for release in April from Republic Records. Read More

01/23/2017 - John's new single "Easy Target" has received immediate and widespread media attention. Here are some highlights:

People.com: John Mellencamp Addresses Black Lives Matter Movement in New ‘Easy Target’ Video Ahead of Trump Inauguration - Over a grim string arrangement, Mellencamp solemnly sings: “So Black Lives Matter, who we tryin’ to kid / Here’s an easy target / Don’t matter, never did / Crosses burnin’, such a long time ago / 400 years, and we still don’t let it go / Well, let the poor be damned and the easy targets, too / All are created equally, beneath you and me.”

Rolling Stone: - "Easy Target" features late-night, smoky-bar piano and an ornate string section, and Mellencamp delivers his grim lines in a dry croak. During a recent interview he suggested the song came to him in one jolt of inspiration. "I didn’t even want to write the song," he said. "All of a sudden, I just started singing 'easy target' ... as fast as I could write is how long it took me to write the song."

Radio.com: Mellencamp takes a passionate and plainspoken approach to deliver wary, cautious remarks on America’s present and future. The rock icon hones in on social injustice in the track’s powerful lyrics: “So black lives matter/ Who we trying to kid? Here’s an easy target/ Don’t matter, never did/ Crosses burning such a long time ago 400 years and we still don’t let it go.”  The wistful melody captures “our country’s broken heart” and laments the future of our politics and social progress.
