The Waterboys' long-awaited new album Modern Blues will be released on January 19th.

The album was recorded in Nashville, produced by Mike Scott and mixed by the great Bob Clearmountain. 'Modern Blues' is an electric, soulful, bold, freewheeling rock'n'roll record with a skinful of killer new songs, some of which have been premiered live over the past few years. Ralph Salmins, a mainstay on drums for the past four years, appears alongside the talismanic Steve Wickham, who weaves a dizzying fuzz fiddle spell on several tracks.

Fresh to the ranks are Memphis keyboard player 'Brother' Paul Brown and David Hood, legendary bassist from Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Additional lead guitars are played by 2013 US Waterboy Jay Barclay and Austin soul guitarist Zach Ernst. Guest backing vocalists include southern soul legend Don Bryant.
