Walter Trout Announces Battle Scars Album and Releases New Song

(Classic Rock) Blues icon Walter Trout has announced that he'll release his latest album on October 23. It's titled Battle Scars and will be issued via Mascot Label Group's Provogue Records. It's his first release since the liver transplant that saved his life last year.

Trout, who returned to action in June with a performance at London's Royal Albert Hall, says: "I'm thrilled about this album, about my life and about my music. I feel that I'm reborn as a songwriter, a singer, a guitarist and a human being. I have a new chance at being the best musician and the best man that I can be. And I'm incredibly happy and grateful."

He's released a stream of album opener Almost Gone. Trout says of the track: "It captures the strength I got from my wife, urging me to go on fighting when I was in pain and on the verge of death. I looked into her eyes and she gave me the power to carry on. That experience is reflected in my playing on the song." Stream the song and read more here.
