Boz Scaggs Announces New Album ‘Out of the Blues’

The eminently talented Boz Scaggs has announced the release of a brand new album Out of the Blues. Due out July 27th via Concord Records, the album was produced by Scaggs and includes a mix of vintage tunes and original tracks. Check out the first single “Rock and Stick” below.

Scaggs made a name for himself in the ‘60s as a guitarist and one-time lead singer in the Steve Miller Band before launching a solo career in 1968. The blue-eyed soul singer, songwriter and guitarist earned six solo Top-20 hit singles between 1976 and 1980 but then spent most of the ‘80s in semi-retirement – travelling, opening a business and raising a family. In 1988 he made his comeback with the record Other Roads.

Since 2010 Scaggs has also been performing alongside Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald in the supergroup The Dukes of September.

Out of the Blues follows his acclaimed 2015 album A Fool to Care – which included the original blues track “Hell to Pay”, performed with Bonnie Raitt. The album reached number one on the Billboard Blues Album chart and number 54 on the Billboard 200.

The new album features performances by guitarists Doyle Bramhall II, Ray Parker Jr. and Charlie Sexton, bassist Willie Weeks, drummer Jim Keltner and keyboardist Jim Cox, as well as longtime friend Jack Walroth on guitar, harmonica and percussion.
