GuitarWorld.com – Southern rock powerhouse Blackberry Smoke have premiered a new song, “Flesh and Bone,” and you can hear it below. The sneaky, to-the-point rocker represents the universe’s first taste of the band’s new album, Find a Light, which will be released April 6 via Thirty Tigers.
“Flesh and Bone” is a greasy, stomping, slide-guitar-packed tune with a IV section that recalls mid-period Led Zeppelin. The key-jumping guitar solo is a tight, reverb- and delay-packed gem—a composition within a composition. Like most of the band’s most beloved tracks, it was written by frontman/guitarist Charlie Starr.
“The new album is a melting pot of Blackberry Smoke music with a wide range of sound and emotion,” Starr says. “I think it’s our most inspired work yet.”
In addition to Starr and band members Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals) and Brandon Still (keyboards), the album features Robert Randolph (“I’ll Keep Ramblin’”), Amanda Shires (“Let Me Down Easy”) and the Wood Brothers (“Mother Mountain”).
