I can never say enough good things about BRIAN SETZER. More people need to explore his massive body of work, and I do my best to make sure the youngsters around these parts are exposed to it. That said, I’m really excited for the August 12 release of ROCKABILLY RIOT! ALL ORIGINAL (Surfdog Records). This week, Setzer has released the first single, “Let’s Shake” – and it’s all the rockabilly goodness you’d expect. Give it a loud listen below, and check out a few words from the man himself…

“Yeah, ‘Let’s Shake,’ how come no one has thought of that title yet? We’ve been making rock ‘n roll now for 60 years and no one has come up with ‘Let’s Shake?’ And I came up with it and I went ‘wow…Let’s Shake!’ You know, oh god, it’s just so simple it’s magic! It’s got a really great guitar solo in it, just rock ‘n roll sounding…it’s not really ‘billy’ sounding, it’s more rock and roll… again, it’s the simplest songs that are the hardest to write.”Brian Setzer
