Joe Bonamassa just released the music video for his track “King Bee Shakedown”, taken from his brand new studio album “Redemption”, which is release by Mascot/ Provogue on September 21st, 2018.

Grab your dancing shoes and get ready for the daring and energetic new tune from Bonamassa. “King Bee Shakedown”, recorded on the highly-anticipated new album “Redemption”, is reminiscent of high-energy swing and jump-blues, styles artists like Brian Setzer helped to revive throughout the 80’s.

The song is a high-tempo boogie complete with booming backbeats from the drums, blaring horn stabs, a red-hot solo from Joe!

If the stylistic exploration wasn’t courageous enough, Joe decided to play “King Bee Shakedown” as the opener to the majority of his 2018 live performances.

With the fans twisting in their seats and the band having a blast on stage, the decision seemed to pay off as it has quickly become a fan favourite on this leg of Joe’s tour.

The album reunites Bonamassa with some of Nashville’s finest music minds such as Tom Hambridge, James House, Gary Nicholson, as well as Richard Page, Dion Dimucci and continues his long creative relationship with Kevin Shirley. “From a Producer’s perspective, this is far and away the most challenging and diverse album that Joe has ever made”, says Shirley.

The album was recorded at various locations including, Blackbird Studios, Nashville TN, The Cave Australia, Sydney OZ, Studio At The Palms, Las Vegas NV, Criteria Hit Factory, Miami FL and Addiction Sound Studios, Nashville TN. It was once again recorded with a remarkable collection of musicians including; drummer Anton Fig, bassist Michael Rhodes, keyboardist Reese Wynans, horn players Lee Thornburg and Paulie Cerra, harmony vocalist Gary Pinto, background singers Mahalia Barnes, Jade McRae, Juanita Tippins and Kevin Shirley introduced two extra guitar players, Kenny Greenberg and Doug Lancio. “It was interesting, because having two extra guitar players involved, allowed me to play a certain way”, Bonamassa adds.
