JESSE JAMES DUPREE Shares New Song 'Never Gets Old' Co-Written With AC/DC's BRIAN JOHNSON

Jesse James Dupree has announced the release of a new studio album titled "Breathing Fire" planned for global release on November 10. Today, he presents the lead track titled "Never Gets Old", co-written with AC/DC's Brian Johnson. The recording features Jesse, with his son Nigel on drums and JACKYL bandmate guitarist Roman Glick.

The song is a co-write between Dupree and longtime friend Johnson. The two collaborated for several JACKYL records, dating back to "Cut The Crap"'s "Locked & Loaded" (1997) and "Kill The Sunshine" from "Relentless" (2002).

Dupree shares: "Brian Johnson of AC/DC is ROCK! I camped out for two nights to get 'Back In Black' concert tickets in 1980, and to be writing songs with him is a trip!"

Dupree offers: "This album is a convenient accident as I had no intention of recording one. It came about when I was listening to some old AC/DCrecords, and it reminded me how important rock 'n' roll is to me. The ideas started coming, and at the same time my son Nigel walked through the door from Nashville. The next thing I knew Roman was there, and we were laying the tracks down.

"I had not spoken to Brian Johnson for about six months because he was preoccupied with his book tour. Coincidentally, he dialed me in the days after we had been recording. Some of the strongest songs I've ever been a part of are featured on this album. How cool is it to play with your son, your best friend (in Roman),and to write songs with Brian Johnson? Life doesn't get better than that."
