(Gütersloh, Germany – July 16, 2021) – Blues rockers THE PICTUREBOOKS teams up with Chris Robertson from BLACK STONE CHERRY for their new track “Catch Me If You Can”, which is off their forthcoming album The Major Minor Collective out September 3rd. Watch the official music video, filmed in Guetersloh (GER) and Edmonton/Kentucky (USA), HERE. The song is now available to purchase and stream, HERE.

“Ever since touring with Black Stone Cherry, we became huge fans, especially of Chris Robertson´s voice and guitar wizardry. When we finished writing this song we knew this one was for him. We sent the song over and Chris came back with the most amazing vocals and guitar solo! There was an instant connection and understanding of where this song needed to go, a dream collaboration,” states THE PICTUREBOOKS about the new track.

Chris Robertson of BLACK STONE CHERRY adds, “Who the hell could have known that in the middle of a pandemic The Picturebooks would reach out and ask if I’d want to be a part of a song!? What transpired was a therapeutic session of rock n roll, blues and a whole lotta truth! The only way to listen to this is with the volume way up!!“
