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 Johnny Deppand Bob Mould. With gritty hints of folk, pop and rock, Afraid Of Ghosts weaves a journey through life, love, death and everything in between.
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. Having revealed the first album track “Chrissie Hynde” wistfully invoking the legendary Pretenders frontwoman, today Walker shares album title track “Afraid of Ghosts,” which finds him exploring themes of coming to terms with the past and living for the future. Letting go of then, and holding onto now, over spare acoustic guitar notes and accordion chords. Revealed with Esquire, and also below
