13 is the thirteenth solo album from American musician Brian Setzer. It was released in 2006 on Surfdog Records, and contained the Japanese hit single "Back Streets Of Tokyo". Setzer had originally intended for the album to have one direction, or sound, but after thinking about how The Beatles' albums were so diverse, he decided to include many different styles on the album.


Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom, who appears on "Really Rockabilly", were both in the Stray Cats. "We Are The Marauders" was written by Brian Setzer for the rockabilly band The Marauders, who opened for the Brian Setzer Orchestra in 2006. The song appears on their self-titled album.
