Video: New Video From Derek Smalls

In celebration of his forthcoming debut solo album, Derek Smalls, the bass force formerly of the fabled heavy metal band formerly known as Spinal Tap, is premiering the video for the single “It Don’t Get Old”. 

Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing) is out globally April 13 via Twanky Records/BMG on digital, CD and vinyl. The album is available for pre-order now at http://hyperurl.co/DSmallsChange 

Smalls launches his U.S. tour “Lukewarm Water Live: An Adventure in Loud Music” on April 14 in concert with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra at the Saenger Theater, New Orleans. Subsequent dates include June 29 in Atlanta at the Atlanta Symphony Hall with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestraand a special appearance with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center inWashington, DC (additional details to be announced soon).
 
Smalls Change is a poignant and oftentimes furious contemplation on aging that explores the passing of time and all things loud. With styles that cross the gamut of musical genres, the album possesses the edgy rawness and Rock God sensibility that was always shared by Derek and his fellow former band members, Nigel Tufnel and David St. Hubbins. The album also features some of the greatest talents of rock and roll music and beyond including Donald Fagen, Dweezil Zappa, Rick Wakeman, Richard Thompson, Steve Lukather, Joe Satriani, Waddy Wachtel, Michael League, Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Paul Shaffer, Steve Vai, Larry Carlton, Judith Owen, Jane Lynch and The Hungarian Studio Orchestra. Smalls Change is produced by CJ Vanston (Spinal Tap, Rodney Crowell).

Derek Smalls describes Smalls Change as “halfway between ‘rage against the dying of the light’ and trying to find the light.” When asked how he managed to round up so many world-class rockers to join the project, Derek’s terse response is “pity fuck.”
