LAS VEGAS, Nevada – After nearly 30 years, the classic rock group the Eagles may soon release their first album of all new music.
Founding member Don Henley said during a private weekend concert the band was nearing completion on an album, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Tuesday.
"It's coming out in 60 to 90 days, if we don't kill each other first," Henley told the crowd Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Eagles and Henley spokesman Larry Solters said Wednesday there was no comment.
"The Long Run" in 1979 was the Eagles last album featuring all new material. That album included the Grammy-winning single "Heartache Tonight."
The group officially disbanded in 1982, then reunited in 1994 for a comeback tour featuring Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Timothy Schmit and Don Felder.
The band appeared together again in 1998, with past members Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner, when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Henley, 59, will be honored Feb. 9 as the 2007 MusiCares Person of the Year. The annual gala put on by the Recording Academy and the MusiCares Foundation is among the festivities leading up to the 49th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 11.
Henley was selected for his achievements as a musician and for his philanthropic work benefiting environmental issues and musicians' rights and concerns.
