Boz Scaggs will release a new studio album titled Out of the Blues on July 27. The nine-track collection features covers of select vintage blues and R&B songs, as well as four tunes penned by his Scaggs’ longtime friend Jack Walroth, one of which he co-wrote.
In addition, the album includes a rendition of the 1974 Neil Young song “On the Beach.”
Scaggs co-produced Out of the Blues and contributed rhythm guitar, bass and vocoder to the album, in addition to lead vocals. Other musicians featured on the tracks include such respected session players as guitarists Doyle Bramhall II, Ray Parker Jr. and Charlie Sexton; bassist Willie Weeks; drummer Jim Keltner; and keyboardist Jim Cox, while Walroth lends his harmonica talents to some tunes.
