“I heard something of mine from 1975 on a record the other day, and I said, 'That was about seven or eight lives ago,'" he told AARP Magazine in September. "It was a full and entire life of its own. And I lived that one, and it was a great one, and now I’m living another one."

Letter to You is his 20th studio album. He has also released 23 live albums, eight compilation albums, 17 video albums and a soundtrack album.

“We spent one week in the studio — five days — and cut the entire record. It was all live, no overdub vocals and just a few overdub instruments," the 20-time Grammy winner said about his new album. "It's the first truly live, in-the-studio record of the band we’ve ever made.”
