The album is set to be released on 23 July, and will come both digitally and as a limited-edition Digipak CD with a 16-page booklet. The release is the first of a set of collaborations between Conquest Music and Marsden’s own Little House Music.
Kings is also the first of his Inspirations series. The title comes from a shared name among the original authors of the tracks it covers: 10 of the songs are from Albert, BB and Freddie King. The upcoming second album in the Inspirations series, Chess, pays tribute to the artist found on Chess Records, a blues/rhythm and blues label founded by Leonard and Phil Chess.
While Marsden’s most recent full solo album was 2014’s Shine, he more recently collaborated with Joe Bonamassa on his British blues-inspired record Royal Tea. Kings’ and Chess’ release, alongside Marsden’s new paperback Where’s My Guitar, will be supported by a UK tour in September. Find out more at conquestmusic.co.uk.
