Flesh & Blood is John Butler's 6th Studio album, and 5th with the Trio. Recorded at The Compound, Butler's studio in Fremantle, the album took a mere 20 days to record and though beautifully structured in sonic terms there is a rawness and honesty to the album that reflects the brevity of its laying down. Of the approach, Butler says "We wanted the grooves to get deeper and thicker and as a songwriter I wanted the songs to be a lot more guttural and fleshier. I wanted to smell it and feel it a bit more. And my voice to be more convincing." The 11 tracks include the first single 'Only One'.
