The tracklisting to Brand New Day is: “Brand New Day,” “California Dream,” “The Way That We Roll,” “I Love New York,” “Shame On Me,” “Dancing In The Moonlight,” “Ain't No Wishing Well,” “Western Hero,” “Shake That Thing,” “Song For Jesse,” and “These Missing You Blues.”
When we last caught up with Eddie Money, he told us that although he loved heading into the studio, he remained realistic about the downside to being a vintage artist: “Well, I'll tell you the truth: I've talked to Bob Seger, and I've talked to Tom Petty, and I've talked to Rod Stewart, we all had a drink one night. And we all came to the conclusion that once you put your Greatest Hits album out, they could give a s*** if you live or die. Once they've got 'Shakin',' 'Two Tickets To Paradise,' 'Take Me Home Tonight,' 'Baby Hold On' all on the same record, then it's like, instead of M for Money, it's M for miscellaneous rock.”
