Grammy nominated guitar-slinger, troublemaker, raconteur and producer Butch Walker trades his 6 strings for the ivories on his new album Butch Walker As… Glenn, a tribute to the pianoman balladeer inspired by his heros, Elton John, Billy Joel, Warren Zevon and Jackson Brown out 8/26 via The Orchard. As one of the most in-demand songwriters and producers of the past 2 decades, making music for other comes naturally to Butch and on the new album he’s doing just that, writing and recording as his alter-ego Glenn.
Along with the album announcement comes the new single “Holy Water Hangover'' with a video directed by Bobbi Wernig. It is a psychedelic fever-dream staring Butch as Glenn, giving the veiwer a glimpse into the life of a bar singer, shot at the iconic Bob Baker Marianette Theatre in Los Angeles.
Butch Walker As… Glenn was recorded in his new Nashville studio. It is the first album Walker wrote entirely on the piano in almost 20 years, written on the same piano that he wrote most of his cult-classic album Letters.
Butch will hit the road for the first time in 3 years with a 11-date North American tour kicking off October 17 in Minneapolis making stops at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on October 23 and concluding at Los Angeles’ Terragram Ballroom on November 8.
