Is it that time of year again? Yep Joe Bonamassa has announced his latest studio album release, I think he may become the most recorded artist of all time at this rate! I know he didn’t release a studio album last year but he has of course been involved with another project with Beth Hart, they released their second album together “Seesaw” in 2013. Anyway, I can’t wait to hear “Different Shades Of Blue” which will be released in September, here’s the details.
Different Shades Of Blues is Bonamassa’s first solo studio album since 2012’s Driving Towards The Daylight, which debuted at #2 on the Official UK Album Chart. It is also his first album to feature all-original material, penned by the man himself.
The resulting album is Bonamassa’s most accomplished work to date, It’s a blues record that explores the outer reaches and the many different sounds that shape the genre.
“It’s been a while since I’ve been involved in the writing on an entire album, “ says Bonamassa. “So I decided I wanted to make a completely original blues album. I’ve really had to push myself to make everything I do better than the last project. I know the fans expect it. And I feel like I owe it to the fans to give them an original record after all these years.”
