Singer/songwriter Mark Weigle has released his third CD, "Out of the Loop", which promises to be as highly acclaimed as it''s predecessors.
Weigle says that stylistically, the new disc is a cross between the folk/county of his first CD, "The Truth Is", and its more pop-oriented follow-up, "All That Matters".
"There are still grooves on this one, but not as much electric guitar, and some more of the country flavor. Then again, there''s also a pumping dance track, so go figure!"
The dance track, titled "Love Your Body Like It Is", deals with gay men''s obsession with body image and is indeed a departure from Weigle''s pop/folk/country style.
"I wanted to express the message in the language of the guys who it''s aimed at- primarily the circuit guys- let''s not call them "boys". It''s pretty obvious there''s a desperation among a lot of gay men to stay young and pretty and up all night at any cost."
"Out of the Loop", also features a duet with the late gay music pioneer Steven Grossman, on Grossman''s song "Out".
Says Weigle: "Steven should be recognized as much as Sylvester. He released a very out, gay record on Mercury in 1974, when folk music was topping the charts."
Other gay-themed songs on the CD include big boy anthem "Bears", and "I Remember", about a gay, HIV+ man who has survived the loss of his partner and many friends to AIDS, and is now contemplating his future- "A life I never thought I''d see".
Weigle''s previous two CDs of original material have each been ''CD of the Year'' on https://www.tradebit.com (''99, ''00), and have each made Audiofile''s ''Top 5 Best CDs of the Year'' on This Way Out radio (''99, ''00).
His last release, "All That Matters", was ranked among the ''Top 10 Best CDs of 2000'' by Billboard Magazine''s Talent Editor Larry Flick, in Billboard''s ''Critic''s Choice'' issue.
Flick also named Weigle''s "A Good Day", ''Unsigned Artist Record of the Year'' in Billboard.
