The STRAY CATS have unveiled another new video for a track from their new album.

'Rock It Off' is taken from the album 40, the Long Island trio's first new studio album in 26 years, in celebration of their 40th Anniversary.

The video, directed by John Logsdon, comprises session footage from the recording of the album at Nashville's Blackbird Studio with producer Peter Collins and engineer Vance Powell.

"I wanted to make this record, the three of us standing like we do onstage," says Brian Setzer. "When we set up like that, that's when you get your best performances, because you're feeding off each other a lot more."

"'Rock It Off' may be my favourite track on 40", says Slim Jim Phantom. "When the guitar riff comes in, I stand up a little straighter and imagine a peacock strutting. It's got a shuffle groove that's tailor-made for me to do the bop-bop-a-bop - the video captures the fun and good vibes we all shared while making the whole album."
