Butch Walker made me cry. His new song was inspired by the death of his father and features a guitar solo by Bob Mould, who also lost his father in recent years. I guess that makes three of us.
Walker’s new album, Afraid of Ghosts, will be released on February 3rd. The album was produced by Ryan Adams, whose influence can be heard in the sparsely arranged, melancholy melodies. I especially connect with the title track.
