The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome iconic GRAMMY-winner Huey Lewis for an intimate conversation discussing his career and upcoming new album, Weather, out February 14. The conversation will be moderated by late-night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel. Huey Lewis & The News have sold more than 30 million records and netted a slew of Top Ten singles over the years with hits like “The Heart of Rock & Roll,” “I Want A New Drug,” and the Academy Award-nominated “Power of Love.” It is against considerable odds that the group is set to release Weather, their first new album of original material in nearly two decades and, quite possibly, their last. Lewis’ 2018 Ménière’s disease diagnosis unexpectedly cut their recording sessions short and has since prohibited Lewis’ ability to perform. Unaware of the ticking clock, Lewis and his bandmates had operated slowly and deliberately while writing and recording the album in the studio. The result is a record that captures a legendary group at the peak of their powers, performing with the kind of uninhibited heart and soul that launched them to international superstardom in the 1980s and has sustained them as one of popular music’s most enduring and beloved acts ever since.
