The news croming from Butch Walker’s site is that Mr. Depp is among people who participated into the new album that’s being released.
I’m thinking today is a day for new beginnings. Coming to terms with the past and living for the future. Letting go of then, and holding onto now. I’m really really proud of this one. Spent a year writing it. And 4 days recording it (exactly one year after the passing of my Father, Big Butch). My buddy Ryan Adams produced it at his Pax Am studios and we had some of our buddies come lend some vocal and instrumental love as well (Johnny Depp, Mike Viola, Bob Mould, and others). All live. All to an old tape machine. No computers. No fixes. Just music. I think I like this one a lot.
Here’s to coming to terms with your ghosts, taking what scares you the most.. And turning it into something real. So I’m welcoming to the world, a new album called Afraid of Ghosts….
1. Afraid Of Ghosts
2. I Love You
3. Chrissie Hynde
4. Still Drunk
5. How Are Things, Love
6. Bed On Fire
8. Autumn Leaves
9. Father’s Day
10. The Dark
Afraid of Ghosts comes out on February 3rd on Dangerbird Records in the US and Lojinx in the UK/Europe. More songs will be released periodically (so you don’t have to wait until February for it all), and I’ll also be playing a handful of these songs out on the Ryan dates.
For now, you can pre-order the album on iTunes for $7.99 and get an instant download of “Chrissie Hynde.” UK/Euro iTunes pre-order will be available tomorrow.
Vinyl and CD bundles are available through my webstore. UK/Europe you can order the CD + vinyl through the Lojinx store.
See you soon.
I’ve added one HQ poster of Mortdecai to the gallery.

Hollywood blockbuster Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 has started production at Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast.
The fifth instalment in the Disney franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales, is set to start shooting in mid-February at locations in and around Australia’s most popular tourist destination.
The news comes as a relief to the local film industry after doubts whether a $US20.2 million incentive payment from the Australian government would be enough to lure the production away from South Africa and Mexico, where producers were also in discussions.
Yet the action-adventure film has docked safely on Aussie shores, with a production office already set up and cast and crew from the US arriving.
Work is said to have begun in earnest last week and casting directors are getting set to look for Australian actors to join the A-List cast, says a source employed on the production.
‘It’s with great relief I can say we’re here to say,’ she told the Daily Mail Australia.
‘The production office has been set up, work is beginning on the sound stages and we’re aiming to shoot in early 2015.
Johnny Depp’s crime comedy “Mortdecai” will steal into theaters two weeks early, Lionsgate said Wednesday.
The story of a hapless art dealer entangled in larceny on a globe-trotting scale will debut on January 23 as opposed to its original release date of February 6. That sets it up against the Jennifer Lopez thriller “The Boy Next Door.” In its previous perch, “Mortdecai” would have gone toe to toe with the Wachowskis “Jupiter Ascending,” the fantasy adventure, “Seventh Son” and “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.” The film co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor.
The studio seems high on the film and even hinted at the possibility for sequels on a February 2014 call with investors and analysts.
To make room for “Mortdecai,” Lionsgate will shift romantic drama “The Age of Adaline” from that January release date to April 24. The film stars Harrison Ford and Blake Lively and centers on a woman who has an accident that prevents her from aging. In its new slot, the film will face competition from Bill Murray’s “Rock the Kasbah” and will get a weekend before “The Avengers 2″ debuts and rules the box office.
Johnny Depp joined good friend Ryan Adams onstage Thursday night during a show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. Depp played guitar on two songs, “Kim” from Adams’ eponymous album released Sept. 9, and a blues-tinged cover of “Mother,” the Danzig metal classic.
Depp looked pretty comfortable with the band and the audience was, naturally, thrilled—especially when he took on the epic guitar solo originally played by John Christ. It’s not the first time Depp has dueted with alt-rock/country musician Adams— he played guitar on the B-side track of Adams’ “Aching For More,” released earlier this summer.
I’ve added a mix of MQ and HQ images of Johnny at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards that took place last night in London. Enjoy the pictures in our gallery!

And now I’ve officially opened the video archive section of the site as well. We previously had one but I’ve worked on making it more advanced with embeddable codes and better organization, and a new look. I’ve started by adding 18 videos but I’ve a lot more to add so stay tuned!
For the september issue of German Magazine Guitar they chose Johnny as cover-boy. I’ve got the cover for now and the magazine is out on stands on September 14th. I’ll try to get a copy!
