Suzi Quatro / Ready to unleash her finest album to date

Suzi Quatro will release her latest album ‘The Devil In Me’ 19 February 2021 via SPV-Steamhammer and the iconic musician has declared it “the best album in my career to date!”

With COVID-19 curtailing her touring plans, she decided to work with her son Richard Tuckey, a collaboration which worked to great success on her previous album ‘No Control’.

Suzi told MetalTalk: “Starting spring 2020, almost one hundred of my shows were cancelled and Richard would also have been on tour with his band had not all concerts been cancelled or postponed.

“So, I said to him: ‘We should make the most of our free time, write new material and allow ourselves to be inspired by the things that are currently going on in the world.’

“I already knew that Richard and I make a brilliant team, after all ‘No Control’ had been a major success and a very special recording for us.

“Although I would never have thought that we would be able to surpass it. But everybody who has heard ‘The Devil In Me’ and all the people who had worked on the previous album have told us: ‘This album is even stronger!'”

The album contains traditional Rock tracks such as ‘The Devil In Me’, ‘Get Outta Jail’, ‘Motorcity Riders’ and ‘Hey Queenie’. Suzi said: “these four songs are typical of me and continue the tradition of my 1973 debut album.”

But there are some unusual songs there too, for example the pub atmosphere-inspired ‘Loves Gone Bad’ with its intimate mood and ‘In The Dark’ which is accompanied by elegant piano and provocative saxophone sounds.

Suzi said: “Richard wanted this album to have a through line, so that you could put any track on and it just fit. He also said he wanted this album to be as important and ground breaking as my first one.

“So that is how we approached this project and that is what we accomplished.”

MetalTalk have an in-depth interview with Suzi coming up this week.
