The first track to be released from Tom Waits' forthcoming album, Bad As Me (which is out on October 24th), was the gritty bar room brawl of a song, which also happens to be the title-track. With 'Back In The Crowd' Tom Waits shows his softer side, as he recruits David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) and long time collaborator, Marc Ribot on the song he describes as "an old fashioned jukebox tune for a slow dance with your girl (or guy)."

Yep. That sums it up pretty well. Give it a listen by heading here.
