The Stray Cats – Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker, and Slim Jim Phantom – have released a new music video for their tune “Desperado”, an instrumental track inspired by a spaghetti western movie. The single is one of four from the band’s album 40, with marks their first new album in 26 years.
Watch the video for “Desperado” below.
“Reverb and tape delay–I love those two sounds,” says Setzer about “Desperado.” “I was thinking of a Clint Eastwood movie. He’s in the desert waiting for someone to come over that he could shoot.”
The recently released “Desperado” video blends scenes from vintage spaghetti western films and old beach movies for a crazy, fun pop culture mash-up.
Prior to kicking off a U.S. tour in support of the album, Slim Jim Phantom spoke with us about the reunion. Hear the interview here.
