The follow-up to the 2010 critically-acclaimed No Better Than This

Produced by T Bone Burnett

"Rugged, rural and packed with an aging rocker's gimmick-free reflections on life and hope, Plain Spoken is the first album in Mellencamp's 'lifetime contract' with Republic. The stark, soul-baring lead single, 'Troubled Man,' like the rest of the album, follows the acoustic path of Mellencamp's last two projects, 2010's No Better Than This and 2008's Life, Death, Love and Freedom." — Billboard

Plain Spoken is the first album from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer since 2010's critically acclaimed, No Better Than This which landed in the Top 10 of Billboard's Top 200 during release week and garnered the honor of becoming one of Rolling Stone's Best Albums of 2010. Grammy-winning musician John Mellencamp has touched the heart and souls of music listeners and influenced American culture with enduring songs, he is also one of the most successful live concert performers in the world.

His 22nd full-length album, Plain Spoken is a stunningly elegant and soul-searching gem. Produced by T Bone Burnett, Plain Spoken is a strong addition to an important body of work that has earned him both critical respect and an enormous audience.

A man with a conscience, he uses his visibility and influence to advocate an issue that's hit close to home — the loss of the family farm — and as a result he's become one of the founding members of Farm Aid, an organization that began in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms. The Farm Aid concerts have raised more than $45 million to promote a resilient family farm system of agriculture.
