Rodriguez Weighs Potential Third Album | Music News | Rolling Stone


Rodriguez, the obscure Detroit songman who unknowingly earned a huge cult audience overseas, will meet with producers to discuss making a third album, his first in more than 40 years. Though adamant about having no specific plan, Rodriguez tells Rolling Stone that once he breaks from touring in June he will explore the prospect with Steve Rowland, who produced one of the lost albums resurrected in the Oscar-nominated documentary Searching for Sugar Man.

“He told me to send him a couple of tapes, so I’m gonna do that,” Rodriguez said in a phone interview from his Michigan home on Friday. “I certainly want to look him up, because now he’s full of ideas.”

  1. Hi there Sixto! Just watched the film again & it has got me all fired up about you! I hope you’re well & keeping busy in these strange times. It’s now there any sign of the new album? I hope so..your music is so inspiring for the world – especially now with this dreadful virus. I just hope that you get some ROYALTIES from your music. Even just to give your daughters. Could a law firm do a No Win No Fee investigation for you? Probably too much hassle but people would like to buy your music but don’t want the money going into the wrong pockets! Maybe you or Eva could set up a site or link on this site, where people could buy your music directly from you? Just a thought. Take care & THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL SONGS ..DeNica xxx


  2. Rodriguez we love you and your music. Come to Perth Western Australia. We would love to see you in concert. We have both your albums and eagerly await the third.


  3. Another album or not, Rodriguez is better than any folk singer/rock from our generation . I hope he never stops singing, maybe he’ll come back to Boston, so I can see him in person. A third CD would be great.


  4. Please give us another album! Having not been given the joy of his music all these years, we have much to make up for.


  5. In addition to a third album — can’t wait! — is there any possibility of re-issuing “Live Fact,” the live recording of the 1998 Johannesburg concert with Big Sky? Such a fabulous performance and right now available only on YouTube. We need it! Thank you, thank you, Rodriguez, for your music. it means the world to me and to so many others.


  6. It would be fantastic to have a 3rd album! All the South Africans from the 70’s who used to own & love your Cold Fact album (we still know all the lyrics) would totally agree with me 🙂


  7. Please do it Rodriguez!!! A third album would be amazing – and I’m sure South Africans will keep it flying off the music shelves!! Good luck, and can’t wait to see you on the 9th Feb!


  8. The idea of a third album makes me extremely excited. I hope it happens as I’d certainly snatch it up. I also look forward to seeing Rodriguez perform if the opportunity ever presents itself.


  9. I am SURE there is another album going to be coming our way. I cannot wait. After all these tour gigs, it will just happen like it has surely been waiting to all these years. Master poets don’t switch off the visions and music just because they are doing demolition to live.

    The next album is a triple platinum even before the first recording. I am starting to save up now.
