MARTY FRIEDMAN RELEASES NEW ALBUM TOKYO JUKEBOX 3
OUT ON THE PLAYERS CLUB ON APRIL 16, 2021
Marty Friedman will release the new studio album Tokyo Jukebox 3 via The Players Club / Mascot Label Group on April 16. The record is the third in a series that began with Tokyo Jukebox in 2009, and then Tokyo Jukebox 2 following in 2011. The trilogy presents Friedman’s inspired performances to Japanese repertoire he’s chosen to cover.
Friedman put a lot of energy into selecting the right songs to cover for the album. He also included “The Perfect World,” which he wrote, recorded and originally released in 2018. This is the only track on the album with vocals.
His remarkable attention to detail on this album goes beyond the music. The cover image presents the guitarist dressed in a traditional Japanese kimono, with make-up that honors authentic tradition.
