Hank Williams Jr. has shared a video for his new single “.44 Special Blues” from his upcoming album Rich White Honky Blues. The album is set to release on June 17 by Easy Eye Sound.
Speaking about the album, Williams said, “The blues is where it all comes from. It’s the start of everything musical in my family; everything starts with Tee-Tot and flows from there. I’ve always flirted with this stripped back blues – all the way back to the ’80s. But I finally made an album that’s just that, and I like it.”
Rich White Honky Blues was recorded by the Black Keys‘ Dan Auerbach.
“The first time I ever saw Hank Jr. on TV, I was a kid raised on Robert Johnson and Hank Williams, Sr. records, and those things came through so clearly watching him. So, I tried to assemble the right parts to just sit in that piece of who he is,” Auerbach said in a statement.
