Joanne Shaw Taylor – Mud, Honey

One of “the new face of the blues”, Joanne Shaw Taylor, has a new album out soon…

Joanne Shaw Taylor has released a lyric video for Mud, Honey, the lead track from fourth studio album The Dirty Truth.

The follow-up to 2012’s Almost Always Never is launched on September 22 via her independent label Axhouse Music.

She says: “I wanted to retain the same vibe that we captured on the first album. The new one is a combination of rock and blues – I think it’s going to be exciting, and hopefully my fans will love the rockier edge.”

Mud, Honey started life as an instrumental track before Taylor decided to add words during the recording process. She explains: “It sounded so big and heavy it seemed a shame not to write some lyrics for it. It’s a fictional song about a gangster style character who’s burned too many bridges – I decided to go with a darker subject matter because I felt that’s what would do the heavy track justice.”
