Butch Walker Enlists Johnny Depp for ’21+’
If you liked 'Afraid of Ghosts' and 'Chrissie Hynde' off Butch Walker's upcoming seventh album, then you'll surely like his new track, '21+.'
Produced by Ryan Adams -- who Walker is currently on the road with -- the soft ballad brings in the talents of actor Johnny Depp. Although we don't hear Depp singing, all one really needs is Walker's voice to really get hooked onto the track.
Despite the title, Walker wants to make it clear that the song isn't about partying it up and getting wasted. Instead, it's an introspective track where he, as a younger man, wonders what will happen when he grows up.
"I wrote a song called '21+,' and no, it's not a Florida Georgia Line song about trying to get into a bar with a fake ID, cooler full of cold beer, pickup truck, girl, babe, angel, tight jeans, yada yada yada," he tells Rolling Stone.
'21+' is the latest off ‘Afraid of Ghosts,' which hits store shelves on Feb. 3, 2015.
