ALBUM FEATURES GEORGE PORTER JR, IVAN NEVILLE, IAN MCLAGAN,
RUTHIE FOSTER, & RON
Warren Haynes has
revealed details of his upcoming solo album in an interview with Relix.com.
The album will feature Haynes, George Porter Jr on bass, Ivan Neville and Ian McClagan
(The Faces) on keys, vocalist Ruthie Foster, and Ron Holloway on saxophone. Haynes describes
the album as "all original material with one exception, but it sounds like the soul music of the late ‘60s, early ‘70s
blended with Albert King, B.B. King and Freddie King type blues from that same era".
Says Haynes, "This is a record I’ve waited my whole life to make because soul music was my first love. Before I ever
and roll music, I was listening to soul music. Before I picked up a guitar, I was singing—and everything I was
singing was soul music. For me, I think it’s the right time to showcase this side of me. Obviously anybody who’s
followed my career has seen this side of me before—but not to this extent."
The album is due out Spring 2011.
