SUZI QUATRO Drops Music Video For ‘The Devil In Me’ Title Track

Suzi Quatro, the 70-year-old pioneering female rocker who burst on to the scene in the 1970s, will release a new studio album, “The Devil In Me”, on March 26 through SPV/Steamhammer. The official music video for the disc’s first single, the title track, can be seen below. The artwork for the single was created by famous Brazilian neo-pop artist Romero Britto.

The reasons for Suzi‘s remarkable creative explosion: on the one hand, the lockdown, which kept her from her usual touring life in spring 2020, and on the other another collaboration with her son Richard Tuckey, which had already worked out extremely well on her predecessor album “No Control”.

Says Suzi: “Starting spring 2020, almost one hundred of my shows were canceled, and Richard would also have been on tour with his band had not all concerts been canceled 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’d be able to surpass it. But everybody who’s 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 Devil In Me” presents Suzi‘s full range of musical diversity plus a number of surprises. From rock tracks such as “The Devil In Me”“Get Outta Jail”“Motorcity Riders” and “Hey Queenie” to fairly unusual numbers such as the pub atmosphere-inspired “Loves Gone Bad”, with its intimate mood, or “In The Dark”, which is accompanied by elegant piano and provocative saxophone sounds, Suzi presents herself from a whole range of different aspects.

Suzi says: “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 groundbreaking as my first one. So that is how we approached this project, and that is what we accomplished.”
