Five-time Grammy Award-winning legend and Blues Hall of Fame Inductee ROBERT CRAY is pleased to announce that his brand new studio album "Nothin But Love" will be released in the UK by Provogue Records on Monday August 27th.
Produced by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith, The Black Crowes), the ten-song album includes material written by all four Robert Cray Band members; Robert Cray (vocals/guitar), Jim Pugh (keyboards), Cray Band co-founder Richard Cousins (bass) and Tony Braunagel (drums). The new album blends blues, rock, soul and jazz, with a lyric-sheet that examines the triumphs, fallouts and follies of love.
Robert Cray will be available for face to face interviews in London on June 27th, following his appearance at London's Shepherds Bush Empire the night before.
"Nothin But Love" is Cray's sixteenth studio album and marks the latest milestone in a career that has produced 15 Grammy award nominations (5 wins), over 12 million record sales worldwide, thousands of sold out concerts across the globe, and even his own signature line of Fender guitars. Since the release of his 1986 break-out album "Strong Persuader", Cray has been Blues Rock Royalty. He has performed and recorded alongside the best in the business - from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughn, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Cray was recently inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 57; making him the youngest living legend to receive the prestigious honour.
In addition to his London Blues Fest appearance at the Shepherds Bush Empire on June 26th, Robert Cray will perform the following concerts in the UK throughout June/July 2012: Glasgow 02 ABC (June 28), Birmingham Town Hall (June 29), Warrington Pyramid & Parr Hall (June 30), Holmfirth Picturedrome (July 2), Reading Sub89 (July 3) and Brighton Concorde 2 (July 4).
