Real Gone

Real Gone

Real Gone is an album by Tom Waits, released October 3, 2004 in Europe, and October 5 in USA (see 2004 in music) on Epitaph Records (under the Anti- sub-label ).

The album features some of the few political songs Waits has ever written. The most explicit of these is "Day After Tomorrow" and less noticeably "Don't Go Into that Barn".

The album was supported by the Real Gone Tour, playing a few sold out locations in North America and Europe in October and November 2004.
