New Walter Trout Album Coming Soon!

Blues master Walter Trout is releasing a new album in April

Walter Trout has announced details of his new album Blues For The Modern Daze that will be released through Provogue records on April 23rd.

Trout's sixth Provogue album heralds a return to his hardcore blues roots and is his first full studio blues album in 23 years.

"My main inspiration for this album,” says Trout, “was the country bluesman Blind Willie Johnson, an early blues innovator who recorded such timeless gospel informed blues numbers as Soul of a Man and Nobody’s Fault But Mine. His music is beautiful, primal, direct and deeply spiritual. The album explores a side of my music that’s rooted in my first musical love, and it reveals something about me, too. It sums up the thoughts and attitudes of somebody who is getting a little older and is feeling like he’s a part of another era, with different values and a different perspective on life that’s prevalent today.”
