By his count, Eddie Money says he has "about five or six really good songs" already written for his upcoming album, which he's planning to call Shake That Thing .
"It's very hard rock 'n' roll," Money tells Billboard . "It should probably be out within the next six months."
Recording has commenced in California, and the new songs include "I Ain't No Good," "Missing You Blues" and "I Ain't No Wishing Well."
The singer is also looking to revive his autobiographical stage musical Two Tickets to Paradise , which premiered five years ago in New York on Long Island, where he grew up.
"It's a great play, and it's wonderful tunes and I've got a bunch of Broadway-type songs in it," says Money, who says he has no interest in it becoming a movie.
