Most fans know that John Mellencamp is a talented painter, but it seems like his son is following in his footsteps.
On Friday, the rocker revealed that the painting on the cover of his new album Strictly a One-Eyed Jack — which shows him wearing an eyepatch — was done by his 26-year-old son, Speck Mellencamp.
Also on Friday, Mellencamp released another new song from the album, “Chasing Rainbows,” along with a lyric video. It’s the second song we’ve heard from the project, following the September release of a duet with Bruce Springsteen titled “Wasted Days.”
John also debuted a new acoustic tune from the album titled “I Always Lie to Strangers” during his performance at the 2021 Farm Aid concert in September.
Strictly a One-Eyed Jack will be released January 21.
