70s songwriter Kevin Johnson has delivered some of his finest work on his upcoming album ‘The Devil Found Work’.

With artists in their 70s such as Russell Morris, Joe Camilleri and Brian Cadd putting out some of their best songs on their recent albums, Kevin Johnson is likewise proving that age is not barrier for creating great new music.

The Devil Found Work’ is Johnson’s first studio album of new material since ‘Songs from a Troubled World’ 13 years ago. Kevin wrote and produced all of the songs with a team of Australia’s best musicians including Kirk Lorange, Bruce Brown and Russell Dunlop.

The songs from ‘The Devil Found Work’ were compiled from works created over the past few years. Kevin will release the album through Planet/MGM.

Kevin Johnson had his first hit in 1971 with ‘Bonnie Please Don’t Go (She’s Leaving)’. In 1973, ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll (I Gave You the Best Years of My Life)’ took his name worldwide after reaching no. 4 in Australia and no. 23 in the UK.

‘Rock ‘N’ Roll (I Gave You the Best Years of My Life)’ was also his most covered song. The song reached no 15 in 1975 in the USA by Mac Davis and was also covered by Terry Jacks and Gary Glitter.

The Devil Found Work‘ will be released on 3 May, 2019.
