Walter Trout - We're All In This Together Debuts #1 Billboard Blues Album! << ALL NEWS 

WALTER TROUT DEBUTS AT #1 ON BILLBOARD BLUES CHART WITH
'WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER'

Brand new studio album featuring 14 friends and a-list stars.

Guests include: John Mayall, Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Sonny Landreth, Joe Louis Walker and Warren Haynes.

After 50+ years playing guitar and 26 studio albums released, the iconic blues guitarist Walter Trout is celebrating his first #1 Billboard Blues chart debut and the best first week album sales of his career with ‘We’re All In This Together,’ his new studio release. The album hit #1 on Billboard’s Blues and outsold his previous release by more than 2.5k copies, an incredible feat for any artist in today’s declining market. This is an especially poignant moment for Trout, who only three years ago was on death’s door after a harrowing battle with liver disease, before a miraculous last minute liver transplant saved his life. 

Trout is the beating heart of the modern blues rock scene. Respected by the old guard. Revered by the young guns. Adored by the fans who shake his hand after the show each night. After five decades in the game, Trout is a talismanic figure and the glue that bonds the blues community together, at a time when the wider world has never been so divided. He’s also the only artist with the vision, talent and star-studded address book to pull off a project on the scale of We’re All In This Together. “It was quite a piece of work to get this record together,” he admits. “But I guess I have a lot of friends, y’know…?”

Before you even hear a note, We’re All In This Together has your attention. Drafting fourteen A-list stars – including Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, John Mayall and Randy Bachman – and writing an original song for each, Trout has made the most tantalising album of the year, and found solace after a run of solo albums that chronicled his near-fatal liver disease of 2014. “Now was the right time for this record,” he says. “Battle Scars [2015] was such an intense piece of work, written with tears coming down my face. I needed a break from that, to do something fun and light-hearted. This album was joyous for me.”                

They say you can judge a man by the company he keeps. If that’s the case, then We’re All In This Together is further proof of Walter Trout’s position at the hub of the blues scene. This is the sound of an artist not just getting by with a little help from his friends, but positively thriving, on an album that is sure to light another rocket under his blooming late career. “I’m 66 years old,” considers Trout, “but I feel like I’m in the best years of my life right now. I feel better than I have in years physically. I have more energy. I have a whole different appreciation of being alive, of the world, of my family, of my career. I want life to be exciting and celebratory. I want to dig in. I want to grab life by the balls and not let go, y’know…?”
