(Nashville, Tennessee...PR) - May 26, 2016 - Unconventional singer, songwriter and avid gamer Shooter Jennings unveiled his latest album Countach (for Giorgio) inside the virtual world of multi-player online game Shroud of the Avatar™, and he debuted his ultra unique "Love Kills" video on the popular Nerdist.com site this week. The clip was produced and directed by Blake Judd for JuddFilms and shot in Los Angeles.
"There are nerds, and then there are nerdists," said Chris Hardwick founder of the site which averages over 10 million visitors per month. "A nerdist is, more specifically, an artful nerd. He or she doesn't just consume, he or she creates and innovates."
"Love Kills" was written by Freddie Mercury and Giorgio Moroder and was the first song the late Queen front man recorded as a solo artist. Moroder used the song in the 1984 restoration and edit of the 1927 silent film Metropolis as part of the movie's new soundtrack.
Countach is an album comprised of songs composed or inspired by Academy Award and Grammy Award winning producer Giorgio Moroder, whose credits include multiple disco hits in the 70s and 80s, in addition to songs from theatrical releases Top Gun, Midnight Express and Flashdance. Guest appearances on the album include Marilyn Manson, Brandi Carlile, Steve Young and Richard Garriott.
A limited number of Countach on pink vinyl are available for $25.00 here.
Countach track listing:
3 "From Here to Eternity"
4 "I'm Left You're Right She's Gone"
5 "Born to Die" (featuring Steve Young)
6 "Chase" (featuring Richard Garriott de Cayeux)
7 "Love Kills"
8 "The Neverending Story" (featuring Brandi Carlile)
9 "Cat People" (featuring Marilyn Manson)
Shooter's BRC Media recently released Billy Don Burns A Night In Room 8. Though not a household name in most music circles, the singer/songwriter/ producer is often listed in same sentence when referring to original outlaws like Waylon, Willie, Merle, Johnny and Kris. In the beginning of 2014, during a period of sobriety for Burns, he, Shooter, the late Colonel Jon Hensley and a few others retreated to the Joshua Tree Inn in Joshua Tree, CA, to room 8, the hotel room where Gram Parsons was found dead in 1973. The result is the incredibly compelling album, which saw a very limited release on white vinyl exclusive to Record Store Day last month and will be available June 17 on digital and CD formats.
