Joe Bonamassa Releases New Album Details
Blues-guitar superstar Joe Bonamassa, will release a brand
new solo album Driving Towards The Daylight, billed as his "lucky"
13th album on May 22, 2012.
'Driving Towards The Daylight' was produced by Kevin "Caveman"
Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin) and is their
seventh collaboration in six years.
Recorded at Studio At The Palms in Las Vegas, NV, The Village
Recorder in Los Angeles, CA and The Cave in Malibu, CA, Driving
Towards The Daylight is a balanced back-to-basics album that
highlights Bonamassa's signature style of roots blues with
rock-and-roll guts, while honoring the traditions of the original
blues musicians. "We've taken some really traditional old blues
songs - the Howlin' Wolf song 'Who's Been Talkin'?' and the Robert
Johnson song 'Stones In My Passway,' and we've tried to imagine how
they would do them in a rock context," said Shirley. "It's a very
exciting return to the blues in a very visceral way. It's vibrant
and it's gutsy and it's really, really rugged."
To challenge Joe and move him out of his comfort zone, a unique
group of musicians was gathered including Aerosmith guitarist Brad
Whitford (guitar), Blondie Chaplan (guitar), Anton Fig (drums and
percussion), Arlan Schierbaum (keyboard), Michael Rhodes (bass),
Carmine Rojas (bass), Jeff Bova and The Bovaland Brass, Pat Thrall
(guitar), and Brad's son Harrison Whitford (guitar).
Brad Whitford, speaking from the studio in Vegas, said, "This is
definitely more influenced by the stuff that the guys and musicians
in this room love, early '60s English and American rock and blues.
I guess we'll never get that out of our system and its fun to come
in here and find our own path down that highway."
To support the release, Bonamassa's label J&R Adventures
premieres the reality mini-series "Countdown to Daylight" which
debuts today and you can watch it below. The official music video
and free download for title track "Driving Towards The Daylight"
will be unveiled on May 1.
