Brian Setzer has a new solo album that will be released on September 15th titled Satan always collects. Ahead of its release, the Stray Cats star took part in the record’s lead single “Girl on the Billboard,” as well as a string of 2023 tour dates — his first live performances in four years.
Satan always collects is Setzer’s eleventh solo effort, which he co-produced with Julian Raymond and mixer Chris Lord-Alge. The press release promises “iconic” guitar riffs and “nonstop freight train beats” that will appeal to rock, Americana, rockabilly and punk fans alike. Pre-orders are ongoing.
Like much of Setzer’s work, “Girl on the Billboard” sounds inherently dated. The song was originally published in 1965 by country music singer Dale Reeves. “It’s an old truckers song,” Setzer adds in a statement. “At first I didn’t get the sound I wanted until I picked up the Gretsch 1957 Duo Jet 6131 Firebird. I mean, the sound is awful and dirty and gaudy.”
Setzer’s “Rockabilly Riot” North American tour will kick off September 27 at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey. It includes stops in Nashville, Cincinnati, Chicago, and more before wrapping up Oct. 13 at Setzer’s “Birthplace” in Minneapolis.

Setzer’s last scheduled tour was in 2019, but the musician was forced to cancel dates after being diagnosed with acute tinnitus.
