Fresh off the heels of a thrilling performance for the closing of NYC’s B.B. Kings Blues Club and Grill, multi-Grammy Award winning blues icon Buddy Guy announces the upcoming release of his brand new studio album, The Blues Is Alive And Well on CD and LP.
Set for a June 15th release on Silvertone/RCA Records, The Blues Is Alive And Well features guest appearances by Mick Jagger on “You Did The Crime,” Keith Richards and Jeff Beck on “Cognac,” and James Bay on “Blue No More.” Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge produced the album.
The Blues Is Alive And Well is the follow-up to Guy’s 2015 critically acclaimed album Born To Play Guitar, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Album charts. The album marked Guy’s fifth No. 1 album on the chart and twelfth Top 10 Billboard Blues album.
In his quest to keep the genre vital, Guy chats about the origin of southern blues and performs on David Letterman’s Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, airing May 4th.
