Locally based Butterfield 8 has just released Luckiest Guy in the World; it’s the first release by the band since its 1990 effort, Euclid Ave.

Headed by Banana Records President Jim Butterfield, Butterfield 8 has been resurrected after the long hiatus to showcase new tunes now that Butterfield has decided to take a break from exclusively working on the releases of other Banana Records artists.

Produced by longtime friend Paul Nickels at his Bay Village-based Handsome Studios, the album sustains the Butterfield 8 tradition of playing melodic power pop.

Luckiest Guy in the World is available on all streaming services. CDs can be purchased at the Banana Records website, and select Cleveland-area record stores.
