Glenn Frey is the new kid in town...and on WHLI

The music group The Eagles perfectly captured the commercial side of the breezy, pop-country Southern California sound in the 1970s. Fans couldn’t get enough - the band sold tens of millions of copies of their six albums, two greatest hits packages and a live double album before disbanding acrimoniously in the early 1980s.

Their first compilation album, “Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975)” is one of the best-selling albums in history, selling upward of 42 million copies to date. After the split, founding member Glenn Frey went on to have a handful of solo hits and made a few turns in front of the camera on shows like Miami Vice in the 1980s. The Eagles reformed for a number of lucrative tours and another new album in the following decades, but the seeds for Frey’s new musical direction were sown when legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood asked him to perform a pair of songs at a golf event… one of which was to be from the 1940s.

After some positive reviews, Frey seized the opportunity and decided to make an entire album of classic songs from his parents’ generation. The result is “After Hours,” Frey’s first new full album in twenty years, and it features Frey singing some legendary melodies and confidently pushing his familiar tenor into jazzier territory.
