Welcome to my latest video! This one is for the song “East Coast Girl” and it’s AWESOME. Take a little trip down Dystopian lane, complete with an evil dictator played by my buddy and legend Michael Des Barres. Enjoy it and play it loud.

I recently lured the members of my band down to my richly furnished basement studio in South London to record some live acoustic versions of tracks from “Serious Poke”. First up here’s us playing “Awake”, featuring some stirring outro vocals from McGoo. Stay tuned for more coming soon…

Two bits of exciting news! First off, GigSlutz have premiered a new lyric video for the radio version of “Funny How Good It Feels“! A tongue-in-cheek homage to questionable 80’s TV advertising, channel hopping and VHS era living.

Secondly, the new Deluxe Edition of Serious Poke is out now on digital stores! It features 6 bonus tracks of live acoustic versions & remixes.

Walker’s last album, 2015’s Ryan Adams’ produced Afraid Of Ghosts, was a cathartic record that dealt with a devastating personal experience, the passing of his father. This one’s a celebration. In Butch’s words, “After coming out of the AOG album cycle and tour where, at the risk of sounding ridiculous, I spent a lot of time on stage bawling my eyes out, I felt a very calm sense of peace. Like I’d done what I needed to do to get it outta my system. Every song that came after that was almost a nostalgic, celebratory…for lack of a better word – ‘jam.’ And the songs just kept coming to me, which was good because that’s not always the case!

Premiered at The Fader yesterday, Butch Walker has revealed another track from his forthcoming album, Stay Gold.

This is a song I’ve had brewing since the beginning of the Stay Gold album writing. Still one of my favorite songs to perform from the new record and it syncs up perfectly to The Wizard of Oz when you play it simultaneously. I’m also not telling the truth. Anyways, hope you enjoy “Wilder in the Heart”. Turn it up and drive into the sunset with this one. It sounds better that way. Plus, it was recorded with real bits of sunset, so you know it’s good…

Butch Walker’s new album Stay Gold will be available on a limited edition of 500 gatefold heavyweight gold vinyl LP, in addition to CD & digital. Lojinx direct pre-orders can also opt for an exclusive metallic-gold printed t-shirt bundle. Lojinx, iTunes and Amazon MP3 pre-orders include  instant grat downloads of “Stay Gold”, “East Coast Girl”, “Descending” and “Ludlow Expectations”, with “Wilder in the Heart” added tomorrow (12th August).

Let’s get into a New York State of mind for a minute. Wrote this one while walking around at 3am in the lower east side of one of my favorite cities that owns a part of my heart and a third of my liver. I will always be a sucker for “escape” songs. Except the actual song called “Escape” (The Piña Colada Song). Can you believe they actually had some record label asshole stand up at the marketing meeting and say, “I think it’ll be a bigger hit if we call it ‘Escape (The Piña Colada Song)'”…. Now every time I read that title, I picture some snarky music critic from 1979 moaning, “I WISH I could ‘Escape’ that ‘Piña Colada Song'”… Actually, I think it’s pretty awesome. He used the word “yoga” in a song. And that was way before it was super hip to be into yoga.

Anyway, here’s Wonderwall….

Enjoy “Ludlow Expectations” off of my new record Stay Gold.
