Jesse Dayton Announces Memoir, Covers Album With X’s ‘Burning House of Love’

The Beaumont, Texas, country-punk renaissance man’s Beaumonster will be released in November

Jesse Dayton will release a memoir detailing his musical journey with Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, punk bands like X and Social Distortion, and his own career as a solo artist this fall. Beaumonster is due November 9th with a companion album arriving a few days earlier on November 5th.

Also titled Beaumonster, the record features Dayton’s versions of songs by the bands that shape his memoir. He previews the set with a cover of X’s “Burning House of Love.”

“I used to love playing ‘Burning House of Love’ on tour with X and it always sounded like a Johnny and June duet to me,” Dayton says in a statement. “It’s not lost on me how strangely eclectic it is to work with Waylon Jennings, Rob Zombie, Ryan Bingham, L.A. punk legends X and so many others from different genres. And my new behind-the-scenes memoir reflects those experiences. It was obvious a companion cover soundtrack of these musical events would pair well with the book and the audiobook so I recorded a new 10 song record.”

Along with the X song, Dayton interprets tracks by Willie Nelson (“Pretend I Never Happened”), Doug Sahm (“At the Crossroads”), Waylon Jennings (“Just to Satisfy You”), Social Distortion (“Story of My Life”), and two by Kinky Friedman on the companion LP. He’ll hit the road in support of the project in November.

Here’s the track list for Beaumonster soundtrack:
1. “Burning House of Love” (X)
2. “Pretend I Never Happened” (Willie Nelson)
3. “Wild Man From Borneo” (Kinky Friedman)
4. “At the Crossroads” (Doug Sahm)
