Joe Louis Walker offers free track

Joe Louis Walker is giving away his version of Wade In The Water, taken from upcoming album Everybody Wants A Piece.

It’s released on October 9 via Provogue – but you can download the sample track in return for your email address now.

Walker has always loved the 120-year-old song. He says: “The inspirational lyric, ‘The water is deep, the water is cold, it chills my body – but not my soul’ is expressing my belief that the spiritual will carry you through when the physical can’t.”

He recently said of the album: “I’d like to think that when someone puts on one of my records they know from the first notes, ‘That’s Joe Louis Walker.’”

Everybody Wants A Piece is available for pre-order. Walker returns to Europe in October, with more dates to be announced.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
