Warming Up to the Ice Age was singer-songwriter John Hiatt's seventh album, released in 1985. It was his last album with Geffen Records, who dropped Hiatt after the album failed to chart. It was the last Hiatt studio album to miss the Billboard 200. "The Usual" would later be covered by Bob Dylan. Living a Little, Laughing a Little", originally a hit for The Spinners, was a duet with Elvis Costello.
After Warming Up To The Ice Age failed to thaw the people at Geffen, Hiatt teamed up with his old friend Cooder and made a string of albums for A&M. Bring The Family in 1987 was followed swiftly by Slow Turning (1988) and Stolen Moments (1990). Between them they constituted a trio of fine albums that took him in a more roots-based direction. Next up was 1993’s solo effort Perfectly Good Guitar, a more overtly rock album on which Hiatt was joined by members of alternative rock bands School Of Fish and Wire.
Baby shaved her head and gone Now she's got black stockings on I think she's warmin' up to the ice age. Baby spreads her little wings Now the boys say awful things I think she's warmin' up to the ice age. She's got a heart and it's on fire But how would they know This cool blue flame will only expire Out here in the snow. Frozen like a punch bowl swan Frozen like a mastodon I think she's warmin' up to the ice age. Maybe she'll come back to me In Ten Million years And maybe I could make her see It's only a world of tears

Hiatt turned to veteran country producer Norbert Putnam here, but the result still rocked hard, with the occasional soul touch (notably those obnoxious thumb-struck basslines that are so prevalent in '80s music). Highlights here are "The Usual," later covered by Bob Dylan, and "She Said the Same Things to M. There is also an odd duet with Elvis Costello on the old Spinners hit "Living a Little, Laughing a Little" (try and tell them apart).

After 'Ice Age' I got sober. Influencing Hiatt's decision to become sober was the birth of his daughter Lily in 1984. Shortly after giving birth to Lily, Hiatt's estranged wife committed suicide, leaving him a single father. Hiatt remained sober throughout the "Warming Up to the Ice Age" tour, which he called a "scary experience". The album failed to build on the critical momentum of its predecessor, Riding with the King, and Hiatt found himself without a label as Geffen dropped him from their roster.
