HSW Newsflash: Tom Waits live album on the way

File this under "fuck" and "yes": Tom Waits' Glitter and Doom tour will be chronicled on an upcoming live disc. It'll feature tracks recorded during the aforementioned jaunt 'round the country, the final stop I was lucky enough to witness in glorious 5th-row fashion.

That show is widely available, specifically through npr.org, and I highly recommend giving it a listen.

Details are sparse right now, so no date, tracklist, or cover art. The release will be Waits' first of any kind since the immaculate Orphans dropped in 2006. Here's to hoping there's some more original stuff on the way. Or, for that matter, a big ol' tour.
