Single I Philip Sayce – Backstabber


Rock and blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter Philip Sayce is excited to announce the release of his new single, “Backstabber” 

This track is the third single off his highly anticipated new album, The Wolves are Coming (Atomic Gemini / Forty Below Records), which will be released on Friday, February 23, 2024.

Philip gets to the point about ‘Backstabber,’ “This is a song about fake friends and a ruthless music business. I think the lyrics speak loud and clear, and the weight of the track conveys the intensity of my feelings. It is a jungle out there; watch your back. This song also speaks to my life-long journey with OCD — named one of the ten most disabling disorders by the World Health Organization — and this burden that myself, and many others live with every day.”

Produced by Philip at Station House Studio in Los Angeles, and engineered by GRAMMY award winner Mark Rains (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Tanya Tucker), mixed by Brian Moncarz (Fantastic Negrito, Alice Cooper, Ian Moore), and mastered by Brian Lucey (Lizzo, The Black Keys, Michael Bublé), “Backstabber” features Michael Leasure on drums (Walter Trout, Edgar Winter), Fred Mandel (Queen, Supertramp, Elton John) on keyboards, and was written by Sayce, who also provided the guitars, bass, piano, and vocals.
