Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston-produced LP ties Shiflett’s California rock‘n’roll roots to his love for country music

“My favourite songs are the ones you don’t have to labour over,” quips Foo Fighter guitarist, podcast host, songwriter and all-around rock‘n’roller Chris Shiflett. “Sometimes you have those magic songwriting moments when your pen can barely keep up with the words and it all spills out really quickly. Somehow they always just sing and play better, looser, freer.”

In this case, he’s waxing about his brand-new single, ‘Overboard’, an overdriven, mid-tempo strummer from his upcoming album, Lost at Sea—out October 20th via Snakefarm in the UK.

“It’s a middle-aged love song,” says Shiflett, nodding to the final verse…“No little voices down the hall / Distracting us at all, oh no”, he jokes. “All the parents out there will understand!”

The upcoming LP, Lost at Sea, finds Shiflett blurring the lines between his last two albums: West Coast Town’s (2017) honky-tonk homage and Hard Lessons’ (2019) overdriven crunch.

Shiflett recorded the majority of the new album in Nashville, working with producer and collaborator Jaren Johnston – frontman of the Cadillac Three, as well as the songwriter behind nearly a dozen Number 1 country hits – and a small cast of Americana all-stars. Among them were fellow guitar slingers Charlie Worsham, Tom Bukovac and Nathan Keeterle, all three of whom laced the record with fiery fretwork. He also teamed up with a number of co-writers, partnering with Kendell Marvel, Cody Jinks and others to fill Lost at Sea with storylines that pack as hefty a punch as the music itself.
