In an exciting development for rock and blues enthusiasts, Black Country Communion, the powerhouse supergroup comprising Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa, Jason Bonham, and Derek Sherinian, has dropped “Red Sun,” the second single from their forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘V,’ set for release on June 14th. The track is available for streaming on all major platforms, offering a tantalizing taste of the band’s evolving sound.

“Red Sun” follows the critically acclaimed lead single “Stay Free” and continues to spotlight the exceptional talents of Hughes and Bonamassa. Produced by their longtime collaborator Kevin Shirley, the song exemplifies the band’s signature blend of hard rock and blues, showcasing their undeniable chemistry and musical prowess.

The lyric video for “Red Sun” invites listeners on a poignant journey through life’s challenges, with Hughes and Bonamassa delivering powerful lyrics against a backdrop of compelling melodies. Bonamassa reflects on the band’s creative synergy, commenting, “This band allows me to embrace all of it. The four of us each bring something very unique to the table. Every element is indispensable. For me, it’s about playing old-school rock guitar, turned up loud.”

Hughes echoes this sentiment, emphasizing the band’s authentic approach to music-making. “We create music for ourselves. We make music that resonates with us and hope it resonates with everyone else. We don’t create it for record labels or individuals,” he shares.

Derek Sherinian credits producer Kevin Shirley for steering the ship and ensuring the band’s creative energies remain focused. “We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Kevin Shirley for steering the ship. He keeps everything flowing,” Sherinian remarks.

“Red Sun” is not only a significant addition to Black Country Communion’s discography but also a testament to their evolution as a collective. The track embodies their shared philosophy of crafting authentic, heartfelt music that reflects their collective experiences and musical influences.
