Walker will make his national TV debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with a performance of his new single "Here Comes The..." featuring Pink, who also appears on the album track, on Tuesday, February 3, 2009.

The two have contributed to each other's albums in the past and Ellen will mark their first TV performance together. Prior to the Ellen performance, on January 29th, Walker will perform songs off of Sycamore Meadows on NPR's premiere music program World Café, which is syndicated on 168 NPR stations nationwide.

In addition to his work on the latest Pink album, 'Funhouse', Butch's new Katy Perry single "Thinking Of You" just entered Billboard's Top 20 chart and his Top 5 Secondhand Serenade smash "Fall For You" is nearing towards double platinum sales. He recently completed work with Dashboard Confessional on their next album and had the unique experience of working with the all-star cast of Cee-Lo, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, Janelle Monet, Travis McCoy from Gym Class Heroes and Brendon Urie from Panic at the Disco on the new global theme for Coca Cola, "Open Happiness."

After playing a string of sold-out dates around the release of his album in October and November of 2008, Walker will head out on a national headlining tour that will kick-off in Toronto on March 5th and visit over 20 cities.

Walker's latest album 'Sycamore Meadows' has received rave reviews from the press. Billboard referred to the album as a "new high point for the already accomplished Walker", Filter stated, "as a songwriter his storytelling ability alone wins the day" and USA Today says "best thing I've heard from him."


Sycamore Meadows, the street where acclaimed musician Butch Walker lived and worked in Malibu, CA has drastically changed as a result of the massive wildfires that destroyed much of the area last November. And like many other Southern California residents, Walker lost his entire house and all his personal possessions in those fires, including his studio and every master recording he's ever made. But inspiration sometimes comes from tragedy and so it became that this event incited Butch Walker to create music unlike anything he had ever done before.

The result is his fourth studio album, 'Sycamore Meadows' (Power Ballad/Stay Platinum/Original Signal).

The album, which was written and produced entirely by Walker, features a classic and introspective sound highlighting his poignant lyrics and unforgettable melodies, further proving the staying power of Walker as a solo artist.
