Every once in a while, we like to throw you a curveball at HRH. We love the blues, and realize that some artists don’t fit the hard rock mold, but some music is far too good to miss. The blues has been a very important element of hard rock music, and every once in a while, we gotta step away from the heavy rock, and go back its roots. We hope you will give Robert Cray’s new song a listen.
Ahead of the August 27th release of his forthcoming studio album “Nothin But Love”, ROBERT CRAY is currently streaming the first single to be taken from it, “(Won’t Be) Coming Home”, exclusively on Soundcloud.

Nothin But Love is Cray’s sixteenth studio album and marks the latest milestone
in a career that has produced 15 Grammy award nominations (5 wins), over 12
million record sales worldwide, thousands of sold out concerts across the globe,
and even his own signature line of Fender guitars.
Produced with what Shirley refers to as “the dirt under the fingernails,” NothinBut Love was recorded live over two-weeks at the Revolver Studios in LA. The album features the soaring break-up blues of Won’t Be Coming Home, the jazz chops of I’ll Always Remember You, the soul-drenched ode to repossession that is Great Big Old House and the frantic ’50s-flavoured rocker Side Dish.
