JOE BONAMASSA REVAMPS HIS DEBUT SOLO ALBUM 'A NEW DAY NOW'
RELEASED ON AUGUST 7, 2020
Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa took the music world by storm when he released his debut solo album A New Day Yesterday. Today, the blues-rock titan announces a revamped version to be released on August 7th via Provogue Records, that has been completely re-sung by Bonamassa and remixed and remastered by long-time producer Kevin Shirley.
Joe Bonamassa has always talked with an incredible fondness for the late great legendary producer Tom Dowd, who has a stellar discography, a veritable who's who of Soul, Rock and Blues superstars. Joe was obviously thrilled when Tom signed on to produce his first solo album, A New Day Yesterday, twenty years ago.
However, as time has gone by, Joe's vocal style, particularly, has changed enormously. He's grown from an adolescent shouter to a very mature and soulful singer. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of "A New Day Yesterday", Joe wanted to re-do all vocals without losing the original feel of the record.
This re-release comes with 3 bonus tracks, produced and written with Steven Van Zandt, the legendary guitarist from Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band. To complete the new package, the album has been rebranded with an appropriate title: A New Day Now - 20th Anniversary Edition.
