The Drop: Rick Springfield

Ahead of the release of his new album, The Snake King (Frontiers Music Srl), on Jan. 26, 2018, the GRAMMY Museum will welcome GRAMMY®-winning singer/songwriter Rick Springfield to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation and performance, hosted by Lyndsey Parker, Managing Editor for Yahoo Music. His new album finds Springfield exploring the blues side of his rock & roll, and marks a definite departure from the power pop he has been known for. With 25 million records sold, Springfield has withstood the test of time far better than most critics would ever have imagined, performing nearly 100 concerts around the world every year. He has written, and performed some of the best-crafted power pop anthems of the past 40 years, including 17 U.S. Top 40 hits, among them, "Don't Talk to Strangers," "An Affair of the Heart," "I've Done Everything for You," "Love Somebody," and "Human Touch," as well as the 1981 GRAMMY-winning Best Male Rock Vocal Performance No. 1 single, "Jessie's Girl."
