Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, one of today’s leading blues torchbearers, has debuted new single, 662.

An homage to Ingram’s Clarksdale, Mississippi roots – and named after his hometown telephone area code – 662 packs a spanky single-coil riff and Chuck Berry shuffle, punctuated by Kingfish’s trademark beyond-his-years phrasing and rich vocals. And just when you think the track is over… another monster of a lead rears its head.
