Kiefer Sutherland Announces 'Reckless & Me Special Edition' Due Out 9/27 via BMG
ANNOUNCES SPECIAL EDITION OF
‘RECKLESS & ME’
OUT FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 VIA BMG
DELUXE EDITION TO INCLUDE BONUS DISC OF FULL 2019 LIVE CONCERT
LOS ANGELES (September 20, 2019) – Kiefer Sutherland’s sophomore album, the 10-song Reckless & Me, arrived earlier this year on a wave of praise and today he’s announced a deluxe edition of the album is set for a September 27 release via BMG. Reckless & Me Special Edition includes the original album along with a bonus disc featuring Sutherland’s full concert in Berlin. Recorded on March 1, 2019 at SchwuZ in Berlin, Germany, the live disc captures an energetic and dynamically-tight set from Kiefer and his band.
Reckless & Me delivers Sutherland’s Americana and country rock-infused songwriting style and highlights his gift of soulful storytelling. On the bonus disc, Live In Berlin, Sutherland gets to dive deeper into storytelling and reveals some personal anecdotes behind the songs.
“We’ve played so many shows over the past five years, to have one of them recorded, so that fans who couldn’t make a show because we didn’t play in their particular town or city, is very special to me,” says Sutherland. “I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed playing it”.
Reckless & Me holds beautifully arranged ballads and authentic country rockers such as the album’s lead single, “Open Road,” “This Is How It’s Done and “Something You Love” – all delivered with Sutherland’s distinctive, whiskey-soaked and gravel-laced voice. Produced by Jude Cole, Reckless & Me marks the follow up to Sutherland’s critically acclaimed debut album, Down In A Hole (2016).
The official music video for “Something You Love” can be watched here.

Some praise for Reckless & Me:
“Kiefer Sutherland is ready to show the music world how it's done.”
--Mitchell Peters, Billboard, March 9, 2019
“…a collection of freewheeling honky-tonk anthems that will speak to every outlaw soul…Reckless & Me standouts that embody the freedom that touring life provides include his current single ‘This Is How It’s Done,’ opener ‘Open Road’ and ‘Something You Love.’ His take on Patty Loveless’ ‘Blame it On Your Heart’ is irresistible, and ‘Agave’ offers a Bonnie-and-Clyde storyline that’s set south of the border with salsa undertones and blues-rock guitar riffs that make it sound like two songs in one.”
--Lauren Tingle, CMT, April 23, 2019
“Kiefer Sutherland has shared his anthemic new ‘Something You Love’…Springsteen-esque and hard-charging…”
--The Boot, March 22, 2019
“…his infectious brand of Americana/country-rock and his whiskey-soaked growl…produced by Jude Cole, Reckless & Me also highlights Sutherland’s master storytelling ability, particularly on songs like ‘Something You Love,’ ‘Open Road’ and the locomotive-like ‘This Is How It’s Done.’ All of which lend themselves equally well to both the record and live performance.”
--James Wood, Guitar World, April 4, 2019
“Kiefer Sutherland proves he’s a storyteller with his new album Reckless & Me… Sutherland proves he’s a true artist with the ability to tell his story across multiple art forms in a compelling way.”
--Cillea Houghton, Sounds Like Nashville, April 23, 2019
