An Rdio Pre-Release: Listen to Butch Walker and The Black Widows' The Spade

Butch Walker

You might not have heard of Butch Walker, but you definitely know his music. As a producer and songwriter, he's worked with mega-bands and musicians like Weezer, Avril Lavigne, P!nk, Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry and Panic! At The Disco. His own musical legacy includes forming Atlanta cult-hit  Marvelous 3, and six solo albums including two with his band Black Widows.

Rdio is pleased to share his new album, The Spade, a week early. Curious what someone with such a pop-music pedigree would create? Spade is a rollicking, genre-spanning gem, touching elements of country, pop punk and good old-fashioned rock ‘n roll. Listen below, add it to your collection or share it with a friend.
