Album Stream: Will Johnson - <i>Scorpion</i>

Whether it’s fronting Denton, Texas bands Centro-matic and South San Gabriel or performing as a solo artist, Will Johnson stays close to his music. That statement rings true with the Sept. 11 release of Scorpion, his first solo album in eight years.

Johnson recorded the album over the course of five days with producer and longtime collaborator Matt Pence on the outskirts of Denton.

“Matt and I lock in so well,” Johnson said. “His instincts and ideas really serve the songs, and his patience and positivity are unmatched.”

To stay involved in all processes during the creation of the album, Johnson has decided against the backing of a record label, and is instead choosing to self-release Scorpion direct to fans.

“There’s an accountability factor—if something goes wrong, or there’s a snag, you can easily trace and correct it. I’m a hands-on individual. I think it’s important for me to learn how to do this on my own.”

While there are still a few more days before you can get your own copy of Scorpion, we’ve got an exclusive stream of the album below, where you can also check out his upcoming tour dates.
