NEW YORK – March 16, 2018 

Dusty recorded and mixed one of his favorite childhood songs "Mellow Yellow" by Scottish-born bard Donovan. He also convinced the award-winning singer-songwriter to add guest vocals to his classic '60s anthem. It will be included on his next solo album Gliding Towards Oblivion. Look for an advanced single and video release this summer. Continuing on the theme from his two previous albums, If We Never... (2011) and Caterwauling Towards The Light (2017), this final album in his trilogy is a further metaphysical exploration of life for a middle-aged man in a world starving for spiritual enlightenment. It is being produced by Dusty and recorded/engineered by Dusty, Martin John Butler and Brandon Wilde at Straus Park and Two Dog studios in New York City. Brandon Wilde is mixing the album. The cover artwork (prelim artwork below) is by Daniel Martin Diaz. Stay tuned for the official release date and select live shows.
