John Mayall Announces New Album 'Find A Way To Care'

(The Blues) John Mayall will release an album called Find A Way To Care on September 4 via Forty Below, he's confirmed. It follows the launch of A Special Life - launched in 2014 after a five-year break from the studio - and includes original tracks alongside covers of songs by Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, Percy Mayfield, Lee Baker, Don Robey and Charles Brown.

Mayall, 81, says: "Every time I make an album, I always feel I owe it to my fans to come up with fresh and varied interpretations of the blues. With this in mind, I chose an assemblage of songs that includes perhaps some slightly lesser-known bluesmen, and that all had either different beats or special instrumental treatments."

He adds of the original material: "As always, I draw from my own experiences and thoughts about things in my life. From album to album I create an ongoing musical diary of my life. The blues never lets me down!" Read more, watch the album trailer and see his current tour dates here.
