Hurray, it’s the premiere of Under Attack, the third single from Salim Nourallah’s album A Nuclear Winter, due for release on June 23rd! The album was produced by me and Salim and features the Dallas Wrecking Crew’s core unit of Joe Reyes on guitar, Rich Martin on keyboards, Jason Garner on bass and drums, John Dufilho on drums and bass, Salim on acoustic guitar and vocals and me on electric guitar. Here’s an excerpt from V13’s premiere feature:
For Salim Nourallah, his new musical output comes with a large feeling of satisfaction, and maybe even a nice sigh of relief. Today, the singer-songwriter unveils his new single, “Under Attack,” the third track to come from his brand new record, A Nuclear Winter. It would be an understatement to say that the album has been a long time coming, but its final arrival date is June 23rd via Happiness (A Record Label) and State Fair Records.
“Under Attack” has a classic, late-1970s rock vibe about it, and Nourallah’s vocals and songwriting approach may very well remind you of the legend Tom Petty.

Fortunately, he made sure to store it away for a day when it may feel right.
In conjunction with its official premiere, Nourallah joins us today to answer a few questions about “Under Attack,” his songwriting process, and what he’s got in store for the rest of this year:
