Blues icon Joe Bonamassa has released a rather intricate ballad titled ‘When One Door Opens’ as his latest single, that follows close on the heels of the recent introspectively revealing ‘A Conversation With Alice’.
After what appeared to be a somewhat difficult personal period, Bonamassa appears to be rediscovering himself, and so too the kind of music that was influential on him. Alongside, longtime producer Kevin Shirley, ‘When One Door Opens’ has been co-written with the legendary Pete Brown.
Brown, for those barely out of their short pants, co-wrote many of Cream’s most famous songs, continuing this partnership with Jack Bruce across many of his solo albums over the years. Renowned as a poet, and singer himself, having recorded as Pete Brown & His Battered Ornaments and others from the late 60s on. Composing music for TV from the late 70s on he would eventually set up his own film production company.
In a personal video message, Bonamassa shared his excitement for working with Shirley and Brown, telling 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’ that debuted last month. “
