ANDY TIMMONS – The former DANGER DANGER guitarist will release the album Electric Truth in April; Unicast “EWF”
Andy Timmons has unveiled the first reveal of his upcoming new studio album, titled Electric Truth, which is slated for worldwide release on April 1. A pre-order will go live this Friday. Preview the composition, “EWF,” below.
Andy says, “This track epitomizes the record for me: a great band playing live in the studio – raw, funky, edgy… real. Very inspired by the great guitarist Al McKay of Earth, Wind And Fire.
Reflecting on his connection to the instrument, Timmons shares, “Music and specifically the electric guitar has always been my solace and my foundation: something I can always rely on in good times and especially in bad. Something I can trust. In a world of so much misinformation and deception, I find music and the practice of music more important than ever. Electric truth.
He continues: “When my friend (producer and guitarist extraordinaire) Josh Smith invited me to his studio to record, I jumped at the chance. I was looking to do a record outside of my regular band just to change things up a bit. I was a fan of Josh’s playing and really liked the bands he put together, so we decided that I would come to LA as an “artist” and he would produce and put together the band of studio. We co-wrote some stuff, and I also wrote some ballads. I would say overall the record has a funky/earthly feel with lots of melody. And it certainly sucks too.
Drummer Lemar Carter (Joss Stone, Raphael Saadiq), bassist Travis Carlton (Larry Carlton, Robben Ford) and keyboardist Deron Johnson (Miles Davis, Stanley Clarke, Seal) joined Timmons in the studio. Corry Pertile did vocals on a few tracks, while Smith performed on “Johnnie T”.
