Luke Winslow-King Plots New Album, Tour

Luke Winslow-King’s sixth album Blue Mesa will drop May 11 on Bloodshot Records.

The Michigan native, whose music seems to move effortlessly across the spectrum of American roots music idioms, recorded the album in Tuscany with Italian guitarist and long-time collaborator Robert Luti.

You can get a taste of Blue Mesa by listening to the first single “Leghorn Women” below. Winslow-King made his home in New Orleans for 15 years, and the song is a crackling, bayou blues as sultry as the Big Easy itself.

Check tour dates below.
