JETTBLACK SET TO RELEASE NEW COMPILATION ALBUM, ‘BLACK GOLD’, ON AUGUST 19TH 2013 VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS
+ NEW SINGLE, ‘BLACK GOLD’ (FEAT. DAMON JOHNSON OF BLACK STAR RIDERS / THIN LIZZY), AVAILABLE TO STREAM ON SOUNDCLOUD NOW…
UK ROCKERS JETTBLACK have announced the August 19th release of a brand new album featuring a selection of hard-to-find, unreleased & re-worked material…
Titled ‘Black Gold’, this 13-track collection includes covers of three hardrock anthems (originally recorded by Motorhead, Heart & AC/DC); a brand new song, ‘Red Horizon’; guest appearances from members of Deep Purple & Black Star Riders / Thin Lizzy; plus the new Jettblack single – a revised version of ‘Black Gold’, a track from latest JB studio album, ‘Raining Rock’, out now via Spinefarm.
Says Jettblack vocalist / guitarist, Will Stapleton: “We’re very happy to have a lot of our bonus material finally released on a physical format, but we didn’t want this album to be all about the past – which is why we recorded the three new tracks. We loved working on the Heart & Motorhead covers, but it was especially satisfying to get a version of ‘Red Horizon’ down on tape. We’ve had this song since the ‘Raining Rock’ album, and you’ll hear the full version on JB studio album number three – the version here is acoustic, but I think it shows what a big song for us this will be…”
