Chuck Prophet Releases New Album “The Land That Time Forgot”


Today, Chuck Prophet has released his new album The Land That Time Forgot on Yep Roc Records, a collection that he describes as a “21st Century exorcism” confronting American injustice from the Great Depression through “Nixonland” and into the present day. Co-written with fellow Bay Area artist klipschutz and recorded in Upstate New York after being priced out of their regular San Francisco haunts, The Land That Time Forgot confronts the inequality, economic hardship and self-serving politics that have too often repeated themselves through U.S. history. The results have garnered some of the highest praise of Prophet’s lauded solo career.

The Land The Time Forgot comes during a momentous period of Prophet’s career, including the release of his official biography earlier this month – What Makes the Monkey Dance: The Life And Music Of Chuck Prophet And Green On Red by Stevie Simkin. Both Chuck and Stevie will sit down to discuss the book during virtual events with Green Apple Books in San Francisco today and Book Soup in Los Angeles on August 25. Chuck has also been hosting a weekly radio show on Gimmie Country, called Trip In The Country, which has seen him shine a light on Nashville’s under-represented soul and R&B records of the 60s and 70s. To tune in visit at 2PM PT / 5PM ET each Friday.


“His wise-guy tenor hasn’t changed, and is the perfect match for lines like, ‘You’re headed for prison, you know.’ But retro horns and chiming guitars provide sunny support.”
– Associated Press

“Written before the COVID-19 pandemic and a wave of unrest…Prophet contemplating inequality, economic hardship and self-serving politics sounds strangely prescient.”
– San Francisco Chronicle

“It may just be the anthem we need during these challenging times.”
– American Songwriter

“If you allow yourself to be swept away, The Land That Time Forgot will reward you for it endlessly.”
– No Depression

“Prophet is one of rock’s great raconteurs…timeless.”

“A prolific solo career that shows no signs of abating….The Land That Time Forgot is especially poignant for our times.”

“The 12-song set is sonically spacious yet never lagging in groove.”
