Het album is geproduceerd door Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell and Cheap Trick) en alle tracks zijn (co-) geschreven door Setzer. Het album is opgenomen in zowel Minneapolis (Setzer’s nieuwe thuis) en Nashville. GOTTA HAVE THE RUMBLE is een gloeiendheet album van begin tot eind – Amerikaanse muziek versterkt tot 10 – met nummers vol dynamiek en bravoure. Hoogtepunten zijn onder meer ‘Checkered Flag’‘Smash Up On Highway One’‘Drip Drop’‘The Cat with 9 Wives’‘One Bad Habit’ en ‘Rockabilly Banjo’. De tracklist staat hieronder.

“Obviously, it’s a reference to my motorcycles and hot rods, something that hasn’t changed since I was 15 years old,” verteld SETZER over de albumtitel GOTTA HAVE THE RUMBLE. “I still have the same passion for going fast and adrenaline. But it’s also about my hearing problem with tinnitus–the ringing of the ear. It was pretty bad, and I realized that I couldn’t play the way I wanted to. As I recovered, standing in front of a small amplifier just didn’t cut it. The sound from my big amp makes the guitar rumble. Which is a big part of my sound. I was really despondent for a while because I thought I wouldn’t be able to do that again. So, ‘Gotta Have The Rumble’ refers to both of those things.”
