Ted Nugent Releases New Album ‘Detroit Muscle’ and Video “Born in the Motor City”

April 29, 2022

Motor City Madman Ted Nugent returns with his brand-new album Detroit Muscle. This latest release from Nugent features 11 tracks of pure rock ‘n’ roll, 10 of which are written by Nugent, plus a soul-stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” performed as only he can.

Listen to Detroit Muscle on streaming platforms everywhere:

Detroit Muscle is also available on traditional formats from Pavement Entertainment:

Nugent says, “Born in the mighty Motor City in 1948, I was engulfed in authoritative dynamic grinding musicality that imprinted on my very soul, and this record maximizes the accumulation and lifetime celebration of that energy. Propelled by the animal grooves of rhythmgodz Greg Smith and Jason Hartless, my guitar remains fully erect every time I fondle her! I have never had so much fun celebrating Chuck Berry’s vision!”

In conjunction with the release of the new album, Nugent also debuts the video for “Born in the Motor City,” track 3 on Detroit Muscle. The song is an homage to his beloved hometown, featuring iconic visuals set to Ted’s power soundtrack. Watch the video here:
