Robert Cray is aiming to record a new album in November, he’s revealed.
The youngest man ever to be inducted into the Blues Hall Of Fame hasn’t offered any details – but it’s likely his 17th studio outing will pick up where 2012’s Nothin But Love left off.
Cray tells Spokesman.com: “We sang about home foreclosures, people losing their jobs and getting swindled. If you touch on current events is keeps the music going.”
His current US tour will keep him on the road until October 27. But that’s no problem, because touring is where he receives inspiration – and gives it too.
“Now that I’ve been around for a while there are younger folks coming to the shows and saying, ‘My dad turned me on to your music,’” he says. “That’s always nice.”
