Gary Hoey is premiering his track Boxcar Blues with The Blues.

It’s taken from the bluesman’s upcoming 20th album Dust & Bones, due for release on July 29 via Mascot Label Group.

He previously streamed the album’s title track.

The record has attracted the praise of guitar icon Joe Satriani, who tells TeamRock: “It’s great to hear Gary sing and play the blues with his trademark intensity, feel and authenticity.

“And the guitar tones. Dust & Bones is a great sounding blues rock album that’s both vintage and modern at the same time.”

Hoey says the album is inspired by artists including Johnny Winter, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson and Robin Trower. Lita Ford makes a guest appearance on duet, Coming Home. The album can be pre-ordered now on various formats.

Hoey has a number of tour dates scheduled throughout the summer.
