Jakob Dylan—son of Bob—was born rock royalty, but the frontman of The Wallflowers has spent his musical career reaching out to a vast range of musical icons. The band has toured with Tom Petty and John Mellencamp, recruited vocal help from Elvis Costello, and, on its new album Glad All Over, built the chilly groove of “Reboot the Mission” around a line by Clash guitarist Mick Jones, bringing in a funky, slightly alienated jangle that echoes parts of Combat Rock. Dylan’s raspy vocals tightrope between muttered threat and low-key self-satisfaction on the first single from the band’s first release in seven years. In lyrics and delivery alike, he sounds armed with both the confidence that comes from having exploded onto the alt-rock scene in 1996 with the super-hit “One Headlight” and the experimental spirit to push the band’s sound further.

Since fans last heard from them, The Wallflowers have become fluent in a range of diverse styles, incorporating elements of funk, Motown, and country into their ‘90s-bred slow burn. “Have Mercy on Him Now” sets sympathy for a young man floundering through the world to a Gladys Knight tempo, and “Misfits and Lovers” finds the group returning to their roots with dense poetry laid over a driving but restrained electric guitar. Rolling Stone praised the new material’s “sharp roots-rock songs full of sturdy hooks, deadpan jokes and pathos that sneaks up on you.”
