Atlanta’s favorite son and former Marvelous 3 front man Mister Butch Walker announced today that the long awaited release of a new album is over. The Spade features 10 new tracks written by Walker and his longtime bandmates, The Black Widows; Fran Capitanelli on lead rhythm guitar, Jake Sinclair on bass and backing vocals, Chris Unck on rhythm guitar. The album was recorded in Venice, Calif. and also features Butch’s friend Patrick Keeler of The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes on drums. An avid Tumblr user, Walker will be the first musician to be featured in the social network’s Tumblr Tuesdays post, which goes out to all 16 million users. He will’ exclusively premier the first single “Summer of 89” on his Tumblr page today!
