Kiefer Sutherland has unveiled his second “Bob Seger-rollicking, hard-lived head-nodder” single, “Can’t Stay Away”, which premiered yesterday on SPIN.com. The track will be available on his debut album “Down In A Hole“, which is set to release later this summer.
Sutherland, who self-penned or co-wrote every track on the upcoming 11-track album “Down In A Hole“, including “Not Enough Whiskey,” is about to kick off his 11-date Canadian tour (See dates below).
This record is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary. All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. There is something very satisfying about being able to look back on my own life, good times and bad, and express those sentiments in music. As much as I have enjoyed the writing and recording process, I am experiencing great joy now being able to play these songs to a live audience, which was something I hadn’t counted on,” Sutherland said of the 11-track album.
An official track listing and release date will be announced soon…
Kiefer Sutherland recently made his Grand Ole Opry debut in Nashville, TN on May 31st, performing two tunes from “Down in a Hole” for a packed audience…his heartbreaking “Not Enough Whiskey” and the cinematic “Shirley Jean.” He closed his performance with a cover of Merle Haggard’s “The Bottle Let Me Down.”
