Mellencamp will soon return to the studio to finish recording his 25th album. Prior to the onset of the Global Pandemic, he has already cut ten tracks and plans to record another 17 for the project.

Here is a preview of one of the new songs.

"I Always Lie to Strangers"

John Mellencamp announces he's set to unveil his new live album and documentary titled The Good Samaritan Tour this spring. The documentary, which will be narrated by Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey, chronicles Mellencamp's historic free tour in 2000 when he performed on street corners and in public parks across the country. Here's a sneak preview:

The Good Samaritan Tour Preview

Good Samaritan


At present, we are looking to tour in 2022, but that all depends on the pandemic and our ability to recover from it. Here is JM's "Small Town" recorded in Chicago, October 25, 2016 on the Plain Spoken Tour.





In addition to music and film, Mellencamp will resume production (Covid pending) for an untitled original play directed by Kathleen Marshall, produced by Scott Landis, and written by Naomi Wallace. We hope to resume production soon, but again, the timeframe will depend on the pandemic and our ability to recover from it. This is Connor Antico & Morgan Pereira rehearsing virtually. This is how a play begins...people rehearsing their lines. It gives you a ground-floor look at the beginning.

John has spent most of the last year and a half painting.
