Black Stone Cherry have released a lyric video for their new track Burnin’ which will feature on upcoming album Family Tree.

The follow-up to 2016’s Kentucky was self-produced by the band and tracked at David Barrick’s Barrick Recording in Glasgow, Kentucky – the same location where they laid down the songs for their 2006 self-titled debut album.

Family Tree will arrive on April 20 via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group.

Drummer John Fred says: “Family Tree showcases all of our collective musical influences and how we have taken those to create something that is truly our own unique Southern American rock‘n’roll sound.”

The record features a guest appearance from frontman Chris Robertson’s five-year-old son, who provides backing vocals on You Got The Blues, while Gov’t Mule’s Warren Haynes plays and sings on Dancing In The Rain.

Black Stone Cherry will head out on the road later this month for shows across the US. They’ll then return to the UK and Europe in June for further live dates. Find a full list below, along with the Family Tree cover art and tracklist
