Zakiya Hooker Releases New Video, Announce First Album In Six Years

(The Blues) Zakiya Hooker has announced that she'll release her first album in six years. The daughter of blues legend John Lee Hooker hasn't set a launch date for In The Mood yet, but she's issued a video for the title track. It was directed by Romeo Wong Henderson.

Hooker says: "The blues is one of our last national treasures. I am happy to do my part and keep it alive and nourished. I know that's the way my daddy would have wanted it.

"His music contributions continue to impact pop culture to this day, and I know he is in the studio with me every time as I continue to keep his legend alive."

In addition, she's also announced plans to release Zakiya Hooker: Live At The International BluesFest, which was recorded in Germany. The album will feature a selection of her father's tracks along with songs from her back catalogue. Watch the new video here.
