Veteran songwriter John Hiatt's newest effort, "Same Old Man," will be released May 27 via New West. Coming on the heels of 2005's "Master of Disaster," the album will also be available on limited edition vinyl.

Hiatt produced the set himself and tapped drummer Kenneth Blevins, bassist Patrick O'Hearn and guitarist Luther Dickinson to back him. His daughter Lilly can also be heard singing on a pair of tracks, "Love You Again" and "What Love Can Do."
