Joe Bonamassa has announced that he will release his new studio album “Royal Tea” on October 23rd, 2020. The guitarist and vocalist recorded the album at London’s Abbey Road Studios and it’s been inspired by the work of Jeff Beck, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Eric Clapton and Cream, with Bonamassa recruiting former Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden, ex-Cream lyricist Pete Brown and pianist Jools Holland for the project.
