Gary Hobbs is working on a new album and the legendary singer shared a social media photo with the caption, “New music coming soon.”
The photo posted on August 4 shows the crooner with legendary producer and musician Brando Mireles along with Jay Alaniz, a new member of Hobbs’ Usual Suspects band with a caption that said, “ Today we’re in the studio. Almost finished! Brando Mireles and Jay Alaniz recording all day. Thanks to Homero Castillo, Josh Ramirez and Roger Salinas who were in the studio all last week. New Music coming soon.”
No other information was given, but Hobbs told Tejano Nation in an interview that he’s been writing songs for the first time in many years.
“I’ve written and recorded 36 plus songs and I hadn’t written a Tejano song in over 15, 17 years,” he said. “I’ve been writing lately, two, three songs. We’ve been in the studio with just preliminary stuff, but we should start recording the rest of the CD really soon.”
The singer, known to many fans as “El Borrado de Eagle Pass”, released his last single, “Cuando Eras Mia”, in December 2017, a song that he wrote.
This will be the first album from Hobbs since “Recuerdos…de Mi Madre”, released in August 2016, an album recorded by the singer of songs loved and sung by his mother Anita McLemore Hobbs.
