Robben Ford has announced new album Pure – a nine-track offering which is set to be the blues electric guitar god’s first instrumental outing since his 1997 record Tiger Walk.

Set for an August 27 release, Pure will also be Ford’s first new solo material since the release of 2018’s Purple House, and is described by the virtuosic lick wizard as “the most complete representation of my personal musical vision”.
