Last week, I got a chance to chat extensively with a personal hero of mine, Butch Walker. We talked about Butch's new album, Afraid of Ghosts, including how the recent loss of his father inspired a new direction for his music, why he decided to have Ryan Adams produce the disc, and why his trademark sarcasm and upbeat songwriting is nowhere to be found. We also touched upon Walker's back catalog, the woeful reasons why no one should be expecting to find Letters on vinyl anytime soon, and why Butch's protege Jake Sinclair took over most of the production duties on the new Fall Out Boy LP.

Check out the interview here.

And so, I think after losing my father, it triggered writing a...

It's a new year... i've been wanting you to hear this new song i wrote.. i started writing a song after Big Butch passed away a year ago.. i just couldn't finish it without losing my words. my buddy Ryan Adams helped me really focus and finish the thoughts. needless to say, i think it might be the closest i have ever been to one of my songs (for obvious reasons). this one goes out to my Son AND my Dad.

Butch Walker's new song "Afraid of Ghosts" is stream in in the replies and on Esquire, where they have an interview with Butch.
I felt like a musical sponge growing up. Something would appeal to me and I would embrace it full-force. I think I'm a complete addict at heart. That's the reason I can't do drugs or anything like that because I go too hard with it, whatever I do. Musically I think it was the same thing. I couldn't just be bothered with one style or one kind of music or one instrument. No one scene, I guess you could say. There's too much good stuff out there to be inspired by.

Butch Walker is recording at PaxAm with Ryan Adams.
Butch Walker just recorded a masterpiece at PaxAm. A total masterpiece.

Butch Walker just posted a bunch of tweets in a row addressing when fans think a producer changed a band and how Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco don't want to keep making 90's pop-punk albums.
I love how people assume when I work with an artist that the actual ARTIST has nothing to do with deciding how it will sound. I love my day job, but these kind of shallow assumptions take some fun out of it. I've seen em say the producer "ruined their favorite band." ..When most people have no clue what they are talking about or how it works. Sometimes, God Forbid, the ARTIST comes in with their vision. Good on Panic and FOB for wanting to evolve and change. Most bands in their scene can't...

I was like, "I'm not here to make another pop-punk album. Fuck pop-punk. Let's do something interesting."

Butch Walker recently participated in Grammy Museum's Spotlight series.
Before an intimate audience at the Museum's Clive Davis Theater, Walker discussed how his work as a producer rejuvenated his interest in music and afforded opportunities to explore his "guilty pleasures," among other topics. He also performed a brief set, including the title track from his 2013 EP, Peachtree Battle.
