Butch Walker‘s highly anticipated seventh full-length album Afraid Of Ghosts, will be released February 3 via Dangerbird Records. The production was helmed by Ryan Adams at his PAX AM Studios in LA along with friends & special guests. With gritty hints of folk, pop and rock, Afraid Of Ghosts weaves a journey through life, love, death and everything in between.
Throughout his career, Butch Walker has always inspired with his infectious yet never over-bearing sense of melody. Both previously revealed tracks “Chrissie Hynde” and title track“Afraid of Ghosts,” find the singer-songwriter exploring themes of longing with hooks that are catchy yet never out of place. Today he unleashes another wistful taste with “21+,”building from acoustic guitar and gentle “ooh’s” to a smoldering guitar solo by actor Johnny Depp. Revealed with Rolling Stone, the track is available to post and share HERE, and is available on iTunes as one of three instant-grat tracks w/ Afraid of Ghosts pre-order now!
With his remarkably diverse resume that includes everything from guitar god to GRAMMY and CMA nominated producer Walker’s new LP shows both skill and tenderness. Joined by his friend Ryan Adams in the studio, Walker has joined Adams on the road this fall for a nationwide tour. Both recorded and live, together he & Adams are one thing: undeniable.
