Recent Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Jack Tempchin, who's probably best known for having a hand in penning the classic Eagles hits "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Already Gone," will release his 12th solo album, One More Time with Feeling, on August 23.
The 10-track album is part of a new deal he signed with Jimmy Buffett's label, Mailboat Records.
One More Time with Feeling's title track is a previously unreleased song that Tempchin co-wrote with his friend and frequent collaborator, lthe ate Eagles singer/guitarist Glenn Frey. The album also features Jack's own rendition of "Peaceful Easy Feeling," which was a #22 hit for the Eagles in 1973. In addition, Tempchin pays tribute to Frey, who died in 2016, with a new original tune called "Never Had the Chance to Say Goodbye."
Buffett says of signing Tempchin to his label, "Jack was a true inspiration back when I opened for the Eagles on the Hotel California tour, and it is an honor to have a class act like Jack on Mailboat."
One More Time with Feeling is available for pre-order now.
On the red carpet at the Songwriters Hall of Fame earlier this month, Tempchin told ABC Radio that he was thrilled at getting the honor.
"[I] never expected it to happen," he said, "and it's kind of making me look back and go, 'Well, all that crazy stuff you did must have been OK, 'cause they're saying you're in the Hall of Fame now.' So, very delightful."
Tempchin also chose "Peaceful Easy Feeling" as his quintessential song.
"That's the one everybody loves," he noted. "And I like the song, but the way the Eagles did it was so amazing that it's just gonna live on."

"One of the Good Old Days"
"Peaceful Easy Feeling"
"One More Time with Feeling"
