Butch Walker Readies Seventh LP; Depp Guests, Ryan Adams Produces

Butch Walker’s seventh full-length album, Afraid of Ghosts, will be released by Los Angeles-based Dangerbird Records on Feb. 3rd. Among the guest artists on the album are Johnny Depp (playing guitar on the track “21+”, which Rolling Stone premiered), singer-songwriter Mike Viola and Bob Mould.

Interestingly, although Walker, a Cartersville native, is one of the most successful producers of the past dozen years, having worked with artists as diverse as Gavin DeGraw, Pink, Sevendust and Taylor Swift, he stepped down from that role on this particular album, bringing in his singer-songwriter pal Ryan Adams to record the album live on an old tape machine at Adams’ PAX AM Studios in L.A. The two artists toured together last fall.
