VARESE, July 28, 2020-The wait is over for a new Joe Bonamassa solo studio album! Royal Tea was inspired by his British guitar heroes Jeff Beck, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Eric Clapton and Cream and recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
This album reconnects the 43-year-old with the guitar-slinging kid from upstate New York, who stumbled across the best of British blues music in his dad’s vinyl collection – whose influences have shaped him to be the player he is today. These ten original tracks were co-written by Joe and a cast of homegrown notables including former Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden, ex-Cream lyricist Pete Brown and national-treasure piano man Jools Holland.
Royal Tea will be released October 23, 2020 on the following formats:
- 48-page limited edition artbook includes the album on CD, shiny gold vinyl, with exclusive photos and 4 features especially written for this release: Abbey Road, British Blues, Royal Tea and Guitar Commentary.
- Transparent double vinyl (including a complimentary download for pre-orders from the MLG store)
- Deluxe Limited Edition Tin Case CD. A preview image is not available yet, but it’s going to look pretty cool!
