Shutup&Jam! is the first all-new studio album from the Motor City Madman in seven years.

“My guitar has never gently weeped, but she does sucker punch me mercilessly at regular intervals," Nugent said in a press release. "‘She's Gone’ is just another example of what we do together every day after I complete my ranch chores at home in Texas, and the MotorCity soulmusic slugfest erupts into spiritual love songs like this.

The album features Nugent on guitar and vocals, Greg Smith on bass, Mick Brown on drums, Derek St. Holmes on guitar and vocals and Sammy Hagar, who's a special guest on “She’s Gone.”

Shutup&Jam! is available now for pre-order at Amazon and iTunes.
