Joe Bonamassa has announced the forthcoming release of a brand-new studio album ‘Time Clocks’, due out on October 29 via Provogue. ‘Time Clocks’ is a testament to his credentials and a toast to his long-time fans. His new sound has a raw and vital flavour, combined with a resolute skill that can only be gained through years of perseverance and unyielding dedication. It’s Joe Bonamassa at his finest, ready to rock.
“What started out with the intentions of being a trio record turned into probably my most adventurous and involved record to date,” explains Bonamassa.
His long-time producer Kevin Shirley adds, “I think Joe Bonamassa has made an album that is truly transitional. From a blues musician to a superstar artist,(and) I’m so thrilled to be along for the ride.”
Joe and Kevin brought on the legendary Bob Clearmountain to mix the epic tracks, and Bob declares that “This is one of the best albums I’ve mixed in years. Joe is not only one of the finest blues & rock guitarists of our time, he’s also a brilliant songwriter, (which is) impressively apparent on this record.”
Recorded in New York City, the album rediscovers Bonamassa at a newfound peak with heartfelt songwriting and an unparalleled Blues Rock prowess.
‘Time Clocks’ follows Joe’s constant evolution as he continues to forge ahead, bending genres, breaking down walls and defying the odds of the music industry. He’s known as “the man in the suit”, loved by many as the ultimate guitar hero, cited by critics as “the world’s biggest blues guitarist” (Guitar World), and now the music mastermind has found yet another layer of immense new artistry to share with his fans.
As one of today’s most in-demand touring acts the road has been long and winding, but the rough journey has moulded his craft into gold.
For the album, Bonamassa hit the studio with long-time collaborators Kevin Shirley as producer and manager/business partnerRoy Weisman as executive producer. The album was recorded in New York City at Germano Studios/The Hit Factory and mixed by Bob Clearmountain (The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen,Toto, Bon Jovi).
The band members include Steve Mackey (bass), Lachy Doley (piano), Bunna Lawrie (didgeridoo), Bobby Summerfield (percussion), and Late Night with David Letterman’s Anton Fig (drums and percussion), along with Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins, and Prinnie Stevens on backing vocals.
The fantastic artwork on the album was created by famous graphic artist Hugh Syme (Rush, Aerosmith, Whitesnake). ‘Time Clocks’ will be available on CD, Vinyl and digital and released on Bonamassa’s own record label, J&R Adventures in North America, and Provogue/Mascot Label Group throughout the UK and Europe.
