BOZ SCAGGS: New Album Coming in March
Boz Scaggs will release his first studio album in five years on March 5th. He tells Rolling Stone that Memphis is "one of the easiest projects I’ve ever had. I sang songs that feel entirely comfortable to me... We recorded the 13 tracks to this record in three days. It just sort of fell out easily in the nicest way."
Recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis -- where Al Green cut many of his classic soul tunes of the '70s -- Scaggs worked John Mayer's producer Steve Jordan. Mixing old and new, the album includes covers of "Rainy Night in Georgia" and "Corinna Corinna," as well as Willy DeVille's '70s track "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl," delivered with Drifters-esque rhythm. Scaggs says he'll tour to support the album.
