Today, blues icon Joe Bonamassa shares perhaps his most monumental rock soundscape to date, with the intricate ballad titled “When One Door Opens” on J&R Adventures. The track was co-written with long-time producer Kevin Shirley and songwriter Pete Brown, known for his many collaborations with Cream and Jack Bruce.
Bonamassa has long been influenced by the rock n’ roll royalty that came out of the 60s and 70s, and when fans hear “When One Door Opens” they’ll feel it more than ever.
Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studio in London, the impact of the history and culture of those studio walls is captured entirely in this song.
Along with the release, a brand-new music video gives audiences a special look inside Bonamassa’s recording sessions.
In a personal video message, Bonamassa shared his excitement for working with Shirley and Brown, then told fans “this is the first track off my new album and I'm very excited for everyone to hear it.”
Though Bonamassa has divulged that this is the first track on the album, the actual release date and track listing have yet to be revealed. In addition to “When One Door Opens,” so far Bonamassa only shared one other track from the Abbey Road Studio recordings, the surprise single “A Conversation With Alice,” which debuted last month. “Alice,” as it turns out, is the alias of a therapist that Bonamassa spoke with about some reoccurring problems he’d been facing in life but found that these ‘problems’ ultimately lead to his success.
