Dion has released the music video for his new track "Uptown Number 7" that features a guest appearance from Stray Cats icon Brian Setzer.

Dion had this to say about the collaboration with Setzer, ďI wanted to write an old-fashioned gospel number in the style of the Golden Gate Quartet. I wanted this one to be about moving forward in the spiritual life... having a goal... facing temptations along the way.
"So, I put it all on a train, because thatís what New Yorkers do if they want to get anywhere: they take the train. I can never leave well enough alone, so one day I tried the melody in a minor key. I loved the way it turned out and thatís what youíre hearing.Ē Watch the video below:
