Five-time Grammy winner Robert Cray is set to release his newest album, That’s What I Heard, out February 28, 2020 via Nozzle Records, produced by Steve Jordan (Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban, Keith Richards, Boz Scaggs). The album features a mix of blues, soul, R&B, and Gospel, with guests Steve Perry and Ray Parker Jr.
Robert Cray says about the album, “Funky, cool and bad.”
Over the past four decades, Cray has created a sound that stems from American roots, blues, soul and R&B. With 20 acclaimed studio albums, several live albums, and five Grammy wins, the Blues Hall of Famer celebrates the music of Curtis Mayfield, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Sensational Nightingales and four new original songs on That’s What I Heard.
Listen to his first single “Anything You Want” available now on all streaming services.
Cray and Steve Jordan started working together in 1999 when Jordan produced the Grammy-winning, Take Your Shoes Off, and the recent Grammy nominated, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm. That’s What I Heard is their sixth album together and was recorded at L.A’s Capitol Studios. The album has a distinct Same Cooke vibe to the music.
Robert’s band features Richard Cousins (bass), Dover Weinberg (keyboards), Terence F. Clark (drums), and Steve Jordan (drums, percussion).
