Mott The Hoople frontman Ian Hunter is back with his 12th album, 'Shrunken Heads', which is due for release on 14th May. In his heyday, Hunter's work with Mott The Hoople paved the way today's punk rock and led to support shows with Queen and partnership with Mick Ronson. It's no wonder then that today's top artists still can't wait to collaborate with Hunter and the new album boasts Jeff Tweedy, Soozie Tyrell (E Street Band), Jack Petruzzelli (Rufus Wainwright), Steve Holley (Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker) and more.
