The incredibly talented Joanne Shaw Taylor has released news of her forthcoming album, due out at the end of September. We’ve caught her a few times in concert and her music is always a blues/rock-ing joy to behold! Needless to say, we’ll have a copy of the album in early to review so we can tell you all how good it is… (no pressure, Joanne!).
Joanne Shaw Taylor has spent the spring writing and recording her fifth studio album Wild in Nashville and is ready to release it on September 30th.
Wild will be available in 4 formats: Standard and Deluxe Edition CDs and Heavyweight Black Vinyl and Deluxe Vinyl Double LPs. Bundles of tickets for her forthcoming tour with signed albums and Limited Edition Wild T-Shirts will also be available.
Recorded at Grand Victor Sound Studios, Nashville TN, ‘Wild’ has been produced by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith, Journey, Iron Maiden) and features members of Joe Bonamassa’s band who Joanne met whilst performing with him. Bonamassa has in the past described her as “a superstar in waiting”.
British blues star, Joanne says:
Recording at Grand Victor was incredibly inspiring. It is quite the legendary studio. Dolly Parton cut Jolene and I Will Always Love you here. And Chet Atkins worked here. Basically, if there was a hit record out of Nashville, it was made here. I am very proud of this album, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.
Not one to sit around for long, Joanne, is currently on her mammoth US tour and will soon be performing over there as special guest to Glenn Hughes. She returns to the UK for a few summer dates including Glastonbury and The Isle of Wight Festivals and then as special guest to Joe Bonamassa on the ‘A Salute to the British Blues Explosion’ dates before taking on her own headlining tour from 14th October.
Hailed by The Sunday Times for her “Killer licks, soaring solos and heart-wrenching vocals”, Wild is Joanne’s highly-anticipated follow-up to her 2014 album The Dirty Truth.
All albums pre-ordered will be personally signed by Joanne and can be purchased through her website.
