Butch Walker: musician, rocker, Georgia boy. Composer of dozens of songs that stick in your head; Choruses you want to sing (or shout) along to; Purveyor of authentic stories of exploits and predicaments and romance that are filled with optimism; Architect of albums that have few boundaries, embracing hard rock and ballads, pop rock, Americana and singer-songwriter. Or, as Butch says, “I think it’s all just rock & roll.”
This sampler includes 5-songs of "just rock & roll" from Butch Walker's recent history - including one previously unreleased exclusive song — "Bad Friends" — from the upcoming limited-edition vinyl release Cassette Backs. Find the 12" vinyl at independent record shops THIS BLACK FRIDAY (November 25, 2016). For details on how to find it, visit http://www.recordstoreday.com/Stores
"East Coast Girl" (from Walker's 2016 album Stay Gold) is a rear-view glance of his move to Los Angeles back in the 80's, while "Chrissie Hynde" and "Let It Go Where It's Supposed To" touch on a painful period in Butch's life; the loss of his father, "Big Butch" back in 2014. Finally, "Closest Thing To You I'm Gonna Find" reminds us of simpler times from Walker's 2011 album The Spade, reminiscing on hometown memories and the world of a nomad searching for love.
