Outlaw country rocker Shooter Jennings’ forthcoming release, Countach (For Giorgio), could very well be the strangest country album we’ll hear in 2016. Rolling Stone reports that Jennings, the son of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, worked alongside Marilyn Manson (weird) and Brandi Carlile (less weird) to create his ode to the Italian disco legend Giorgio Moroder (extremely weird, amirite?). Moroder is revered for working alongside Donna Summer, Blondie, and countless others, as well as for writing the soundtracks to Top Gun and Flashdance. The 73-year-old producer is still at it — just last year he produced a cover of Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner” with a vocal feature from Britney Spears. Countach (For Giorgio) is fated to be one hell of a project. Check out the tracklist and album artwork below.
