Wallflowers leader Jakob Dylan has joined Columbia Records and is busy recording tracks for use on the new J.J. Abrams-produced ABC drama “Six Degrees.” Dylan’s rendition of the show’s theme, “Here Comes Now,” was produced by Steve Lillywhite and will debut tomorrow (Sept. 21) during the season premiere.
Additional tracks will be utilized regularly on the show; Dylan has been recording material in Santa Monica, Calif., with such musicians as guitarist Lyle Workman, former Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinberg, keyboardist Patrick Warren and former Gigolo Aunts drummer Fred Eltringham.
As for the Wallflowers, the group parted ways with longtime label Interscope last year but has yet to announce future plans. Dylan is also in discussions with T Bone Burnett, with whom he toured earlier this year, to reunite in the studio, although sources say details are still being worked out.
The Wallflowers’ last album, 2005’s “Rebel, Sweetheart,” debuted at No. 40 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 102,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
