Buddy Guy’s new album The Blues Is Alive And Well is due out June 15, and the latest preview is quite literally a guitar-lover’s dream.
“Cognac” features Keith Richards and Jeff Beck and is an ode to…well, the popular spirit itself. Just like the three guitar icons, the track just oozes cool, from the various solos to lyrics like, “If the late Muddy Waters was here drinking with us / That bottle would be ten times gone.”
If you have some Remy Martin or Hennessy on hand, we suggest you pour yourself some and enjoy the song below, and pre-order The Blues Is Alive and Well to get “Cognac” as an instant download along with “Nine Below Zero” and “Blue No More.”
