Joe Perry – Sweetzerland Manifesto

Joe Perry - Sweezerland ManifestoSweetzerland Manifesto marks Joe Perry’s sixth solo album and is comprised of 10 new tracks. They were all written or co-written by Joe (many with the albums guest vocalists), except for a cover of Eve Of Destruction with Joe on lead vocals and Johnny Depp on drums. The album features guest appearances from a long list of Joe’s friends, colleagues and rock and roll icons. Highlights include Aye, Aye, Aye, which Joe co-wrote with the track’s vocalist Robin Zander, and three collaborations with David Johansen, who sings I Wanna Roll, Haberdasher Blues, and I’m Going Crazy, plus as many co-writes with Terry Reid whose lead vocals light up I’ll Do Happiness, (with Zak Starkey on drums), Sick & Tired and Won’t Let Me Go.

Sweetzerland Manifesto was recorded at Studio 1480 in Los Angeles and produced by Joe Perry and Bruce Witkin, with Johnny Depp serving as executive producer and additional help from Jack Douglas who co-wrote and co-produced a number of tracks. It was engineered by Witkin and Tony Perry. The album was mixed by Tony Perry with Ari Blitz serving as assistant mix engineer at After Master in Los Angeles. On the album, Joe also teams up with sons Tony and Roman on Spanish Sushi, which was produced and arranged by The Perry Boys with Joe on guitars and bass, Roman adding synthesizer programming and Tony handling drum programming.

“It’s going to be interesting to see what songs people gravitate to because there’s such a wide variety of tunes,” Joe notes.
