As mentioned above, the song "Electric Man" opens the rock band's fourth studio album Rival Sons, named Great Western Valkyrie. Recorded in the studio LCS in Nashville, Tennessee, together with producer Dave Cobb, the disc was released in June 2014. Here's what the band's vocalist had to say about him: Jay Buchanan:

“I think this is our best album! This is our most cohesive record and it sounds great... We gave ourselves two extra weeks to create Great Western Valkyrie, and this decision clearly benefited our fourth disc! I was really excited about the prospect of having more time to do it, but the whole process has been such an exhilarating and agonizing experience for me... Normally when I'm making an album, I have to write around the clock, twenty-four hours a day, so that I'm always at work when we're in the studio, writing and helping to arrange things that the other guys are writing - everyone is writing songs. There is no rest. I think it affected me personally, but I think the album itself is something special ... "

"Electric Man", the first single from the album Great Western Valkyrie, describes the readiness of a man to "take a woman to heaven" and his electric desire for love ... In his interview Jay Buchanan told the following:

What does the lyrics of this song mean? Nothing special... It's just a party song! I read reviews and people often criticize me for juvenile lyrics, but they really like them... You need these songs because you love to listen to them! There is nothing heavy about this song, and that was the main goal. I don't have a problem with that because sometimes you don't want to think, you just want to relax your brain and get on the dance floor!"

Well, now - having familiarized ourselves with the meaning of the song - let's move on to the sound. To the question about what Rival Sons often classified as a "southern" rock band, Buchanan said:

“In America, southern rock is like Lynyrd Skynyrd and stuff like that. I definitely don't consider us southern rock! People also say that we play "classic" rock, but this is not true: the band must exist for at least a couple of decades to be called classical ... We are dominated by guitar solos and guitar riffs in the style of rock and roll . And when we play live, we do it for real…”

Bassist Dave Beste said in an interview:

“We were recently asked to do an experiment in a lab. The people behind the study obviously wanted to measure our rock and roll power, so we played "Electric Man" and broke all of their equipment in the process. Someone taped it and we made a special video out of it. So watch and enjoy. We love science!
