Joe Bonamassa has announced that his brand new solo album Different Shades of Blue will be released on September 22 in Europe and September 23 in North America.
“It’s been a while since I’ve been involved in the writing on an entire album. So I decided I wanted to make a completely original blues album,” said Bonamassa. “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.”
Once again, Bonamassa teamed up with producer Kevin Shirley and the album was recorded at Studio At The Palms in Las Vegas.
“It’s definitely my favorite Joe Bonamassa record to date,” said Shirley. “It’s an album that deserves to be listened to in its entirety. Luckily Joe’s fan base really seems to appreciate a body of work and not just songs.”
