Gary Hoey has announced he’ll launch his latest album Dust & Bones on July 29 – and he’s made the title track available to stream.

The blues guitarist says his 20th record is inspired by artists including Johnny Winter, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson and Robin Trower. Lita Ford also makes a guest appearance on duet, Coming Home.

Hoey says: “This is where I belong – playing this ferocious blend of blues and rock music. I did my last album, Deja Blues, to prove to myself that I could play authentic blues.

“Now that I feel more at home there, I felt it was time to mix my favourite guitar styles into something seamless, organic, and powerful. This is the biggest-sounding album I’ve done in years.”

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