Sonny Landreth’s new album "Blacktop Run" mixes genres and styles across a landscape of lyricism and rootsy grooves. His 3rd album for blues connaisseur label Provogue, and his 14th overall, will be released on February 21, 2020. A percussive burst of acoustic resonator guitar pushes the narrator on a journey “between the life I left and the edge of next” in the title cut of guitarist, songwriter and bandleader Sonny Landreth’s 14th album. As the singer feels the wind at his back, a rising bass line intersects Landreth´s vocalizing to stretch the fingerpicked tune into Far Eastern melodicism. The south Louisiana artist´s groundbreaking work has long mixed familiarity with experimentation, and his latest ten-song collection stretches from hard-edged electric instrumentals to wistful acoustic ballads. The project´s range is the fruit of a renewed collaboration. Producer RS Field – who helmed Landreth´s trio of breakout albums – joined the six-stringer and co-producer Tony Daigle to finish the record.
