Buddy Guy’s new album, Born to Play Guitar, will be released July 31, but he’s made the title track available for listening in advance of the disc’s release.
“I’ve got a reputation and everybody knows my name,” Guy sings on the tune. “I was born to play the guitar. People, I got blues runnin’ through my veins.”
Born to Play Guitar will be released via Silvertone/RCA Records and is the followup to Guy’s 2013 album, Rhythm & Blues. The new record includes collaborations with performers such as Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Van Morrison, who appears on “Flesh & Bone,” a song dedicated to the late B.B. King.
The album is available for preorder from Amazon and iTunes.
