Brian Setzer Gets Shakin’ in New Song

Posted:

With a new album on the way called Rockabilly Riot: All Original (Aug. 12), the great Brian Setzer dropped an advanced track that is a perfect representation of his electric 1950s-inspired sound.

“Let’s Shake” clocks in at 3:29 and is pure rockabilly, with hand claps, a jangly pace and a searing Setzer guitar solo.

Speaking of guitar solos, Setzer recently shared his favorite one with Time.

“We could talk all day about that, but the best guitar solo, the one that changed everything for me, was in ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula,’” he told the magazine.  “I was in a punk rock club in New York. I was underage, 17 or so, so it must have been ’79 or ’78. The music was all punk rock and New Wave was just starting, but I heard ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’ come on and it was like a hand came across the room and grabbed me and said, ‘Listen to this!’ That guitar solo was half twangy, half rock ‘n’ roll. It made no kind of sense, but all kind of sense. It had it all. It had beautiful finger-picking, it had single string; it was musical, but it was rock ‘n’ roll. That guitar solo has them all beat.”

Stream the audio for “Let’s Shake” below and just try to stay in your seat.
