For the latest single from his new album, The Blues is Alive and Well, Buddy Guy has enlisted two fellow blues guitar icons: Jeff Beck and Keith Richards. You can hear the trio's wonderful concoction, "Cognac," above.
"Cognac" is the third single Guy has released from The Blues is Alive and Well, following "Blue No More"—a tender duet with English singer/songwriter James Bay—and "Nine Below Zero," a ferocious Sonny Boy Williamson cover.
Set for a June 15 release via Silvertone/RCA Records, The Blues is Alive and Well is the follow-up to 2015's Grammy-winning Born To Play Guitar. It was produced by longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge. You can check out its tracklist below.
