Brian Setzer announces a brand-new album

Brian Setzer

Creative sparks and killer riffs are flying everywhere on Brian Setzer’s new album “The Devil Always Collects”, out September 15 via Surfdog Records. The 3-time Grammy award-winner’s guitar work is bracingly virtuosic and blazing, and his irresistible vocals thrillingly deliver the clever storylines of 11 catchy songs

Add in non-stop breakneck rhythms, and you have an album—produced by Brian Setzer and Julian Raymond and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge—that stands with Setzer’s best. It’s always been Brian’s special talent to inject the roots of rock with a contemporary freshness that unites fans of rock, Americana, rockabilly, and punk.

Although Brian has a 40-year career as a solo artist, leader of The Brian Setzer Orchestra and as a Stray Cat, he continues to play with a jaw-dropping level of vigour.

Scroll down to listen or watch the first song, the fast and hard-hitting “Girl On The Billboard”. ‘It’s an old truckers song,’ says BRIAN about the song popularized in 1965 by country music singer Del Reeves. ‘At first, I wasn’t getting the sound I wanted until I picked up my Gretsch 1957 Duo Jet 6131 Firebird. I mean, the sound is monstrous, dirty and twangy.’
