Walter Trout Releases Official Video For ‘Ordinary Madness’

Walter Trout has unveiled the official video for his new single and album title track ‘Ordinary Madness‘. The new album is out now via Provogue.

Speaking about the track, Walter explains “’Ordinary Madness‘ is about me taking a look at myself and being brutally honest with myself about my own humanity and my own flaws. It’s something that is pretty relatable to everybody. We all have fears and anger and self-doubt. It’s really an examination of that.

Admirably open about his troubled youth, and his own ongoing struggles with mental health, the bluesman had spent recent tours soothing himself by scribbling down his thoughts and feelings. It was only later he realised he’d just written the most honest lyric-sheet of his career – and felt he had an opportunity to let fans share and identify with him. “Everybody is dealing with something,” he says. “And I’m no different from anybody else. ‘Ordinary Madness‘ doesn’t mean you’re gonna end up in a mental institution. It’s just being human. It’s common humanity.

Trout convened his band of Michael Leasure (drums), Johnny Griparic (bass) and Teddy ‘Zig Zag’ Andreadis (keys) – along with long-time  producer Eric Corne, plus special guests Skip EdwardsDrake ‘Munkihaid’ Shining and Anthony Grisham. The backdrop, once again, was the private LA studio of Doors legend Robby Krieger.  “The whole place is full of vintage gear, and it’s all there for you, whatever you want. The keyboard that Ray Manzarek used in The Doors – it’s just fucking sitting there. I remember, on the rhythm track for OK Boomer, Michael Dumas, who runs the studio, comes walking in and says: ‘Here’sthe SG that Robby used in The Doors – wanna try this?’ Then, for the rhythm guitar on Heartland, he says: ‘Here’s one of James Burton’s Paisley Telecasters…’
