Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa will return with their second collaborative studio album Seesaw on May 21. The new project follows up the duo's well-received 2011 album Don't Explain, an album of blues/rock covers written or made famous by the likes of Billie Holiday, Etta James, Tom Waits, Ray Charles, Delaney & Bonnie, Bill Withers, and Aretha Franklin. Hart will also be releasing her new solo album Bang Bang Boom Boom on April 2 and Bonamassa will see his new live album An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House on March 26.
From their bio: Hart and Bonamassa are both based in L.A., but their collaboration grew out of the friendship they developed after crossing paths on the road numerous times, particularly when traversing the festival circuit in Europe. “I was, of course, a big fan of his,” says Hart. “I played a show in London in early 2010, and heard through the grapevine that he was there, though I didn’t see him.” Bonamassa also remembers the show—“It was killer,” he says. When they bumped into each other in Holland soon after, Hart recalls, “He mentioned we should do a project together.”
