A new studio album from late blues/rock electric guitar hero Bernie Marsden is set for release in November.

Working Man – the first album of new material from the guitarist since 2017's Tales Of Tone And Volume – was finished in June 2023. Marsden was able to finish recording the LP – and oversee and approve the album's sequencing, mastering, and artwork – before his death in late August.
