Grammy-nominated blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa has today announced that his brand new solo album “Different Shades Of Blue” will be released on Monday September 22nd (Mascot / Provogue).

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.”

News of the album comes ahead of Bonamassa’s appearances at this weekend’s Download Festival, and at London’s Calling Festival on June 28th, where he plays as main-support to Aerosmith.

    Very positive that he is writing all of the songs on this album. As good as most of Joe’s albums are, I have been a little frustrated by the relentless schedule of new albums which are padded out by covers. There were only three Bonamassa originals on “Driving Towards The Daylight”.

    I realise that covers a-plenty is par for the course for many blues musicians, but Joe obviously has the talent to write his own material. I’m thinking maybe the record company has been too eager to have a new Bonamassa product on the “shelves” when he was the hot new thing.

    Am I alone in thinking that he’s probably reached his commercial peak now? Either way, I’ll be looking forward to this one more than I have any Bonamassa album for a while.
