Kenny Wayne Shepherd has released a new music video for the revisited version of the hit song, “Blue on Black.” The new version appears on Trouble Is… 25, a revisited version of Shepherd’s career-defining #1 hit album, out December 2nd.
“The beauty of Blue On Black is that the lyrics conjure up imagery for the listener to apply to their own experience,” says Shepherd. “Some people tell me it helped them through a breakup, or the loss of a loved one, or they were suffering domestic abuse and that song spoke to them.” Shepherd adds, “The original video implied a relationship and the many futile attempts to salvage it. So we made a new video for Blue on Black, which, I think, is open to more interpretations of the song.”
Shepherd recently appeared on the Blues Rock Show to discuss Trouble Is… 25, which you can watch below.
