This summer, singer songwriter James Taylor is releasing his first album of all new, original material in 13 years.  It's called Before This World, and it hits stores June 16.

Since 2002, the record business has changed quite a bit, with album sales at an all time low, but Taylor says he's not stressing about going platinum with Before This World.

James Taylor will support the new album with summer dates, including a show at Fenway Park in Boston.  Asked about possible retirement from touring, the 67 year old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer says, B.B. King and Tony Bennett are models for continuing.  You find a way forward if your audience keeps showing up.
