Joe Bonamassa "In The Studio" Series

The fourth instalment of Joe Bonamassa's video series which documents the making of his 16th studio album is now available to view.

Bonamassa released Different Shades Of Blue, his first studio album in two years, on September 23rd. He recently said of the record via Classic Rock Magazine:

"It’s been a while since I’ve been involved in the writing on an entire album". 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.”

Artists who helped with the project were Journey's Jonathan Cain, and James House, who's written for country stars Dwight Yoakam and Martina McBride.

Joe Bonamassa's Different Shades Of Blue is on sale now via Provogue Records.

In related news Bonamassa will be crossing the Atlantic next year with his band -  Carmine Rojas, Tal Bergman, Derek Sherinian, Lenny Castro, Mats Wester, Gerry O'Connor - to perform four shows at London’s Eventim Apollo (formerly Hammersmith Apollo)  next year.
