Five-time Grammy award winning legend and Blues Hall of Fame Inductee Robert Cray has revealed that his brand new studio album Nothin But Love will be released in the UK by Provogue Records on August 27.
And lead single (Won’t Be) Coming Home is streaming now as a taster for one of 2012’s most hotly anticipated releases.
Produced by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith, The Black Crowes), the ten-song album includes material written by all four Robert Cray Band members – Robert Cray (vocals/guitar), Jim Pugh (keyboards), Cray Band co-founder Richard Cousins (bass) and Tony Braunagel (drums).
The new album blends blues, rock, soul and jazz, with a lyric-sheet that examines the triumphs, fallouts and follies of love.
Nothin But Love is Cray’s 16th studio album and marks the latest milestone in a career that has produced 15 Grammy award nominations (five wins), more than 12 million record sales worldwide, thousands of sold out concerts across the globe, and even his own signature line of Fender guitars.
Produced with what Shirley refers to as “the dirt under the fingernails,” Nothin But Love was recorded live over two-weeks at the Revolver Studios in LA. The album features the soaring break-up blues of Won’t Be Coming Home, the jazz chops of I’ll Always Remember You, the soul-drenched ode to repossession that is Great Big Old House and the frantic ’50s-flavoured rocker Side Dish.
The full tracklisting is as follows:
01 – (Won’t Be) Coming Home
02 – Worry
03 – I’ll Always Remember You
04 – Side Dish
