GLENN HUGHES To Record New Solo Album In June

March 24, 2024

Legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes will enter the studio in June to record the long-awaited follow-up to his 2016 solo album "Resonate".

The 72-year-old Glenn, who just played a couple of shows with his supergroup BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, confirmed his recording plans in a social media post on Saturday (March 23). He wrote: "Currently at home in Los Angeles, but the road is calling me… Very busy year ahead, touring Europe & the United States, & more continents, announcing soon. Touring until November 25th. It's also time for me to record a GH solo album , to center me, & create new songs.

"New music is vital for me , it is the Healer.

"I will be in Copenhagen in June, recording in the studio.

"It's time for me to release new music in 2025, and play my solo material and retrospective songs of my career live. To be present in the moment, and to stay free, is all I (we) need.

"Sharing good loving vibrations with you all... See you soon. Playing my Orange Amplifiers GH Signature Bass Guitar At every show."

Glenn previously discussed his plans to record a new solo album last October 2023 in an interview with Brazilian music journalist Igor Miranda. At the time, he said: "I am preparing to go in the studio next year, sometime in the summer. I'm preparing the songs in the next couple of months. I have a few ideas, and when I go in the studio, I'll be ready to go."

Asked how "Resonate" has aged for him musically since its release eight years ago, Glenn said: "I love the album. It's one of my favorite albums. I think a lot of people across the world, the rock fans love that album. I was at home writing that album and I went to Copenhagen and I had a really great time making that album. And the next one hopefully will be as strong."

In September 2023, Glenn told the "Iron City Rocks" podcast about where he draws his lyrical inspiration from nowadays: "I don't write about politics. I write about the human condition. I write about how are we feeling, what are we going through, are we going to get through this — you know, acceptance, staying in the present moment. This is the big thing for me. People call it woke, awakening, if you will… For me, it's all about staying present in this moment right now, and I'm writing about that."

"Resonate" was released in November 2016 via Frontiers Music Srl. It featured Glenn's then-live solo band members, Søren Andersen (guitars and co-producer),Pontus Engborg (drums) and Lachy Doley (keyboards),in addition to longtime friend Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS),who joined them in the studio for the opening and closing numbers.

Last year, Hughes launched his solo tour under the banner "Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple Live – Celebrating The 50th Anniversary Of The Album Burn". Glenn performed DEEP PURPLE's legendary rock album "Burn" and also ran through DEEP PURPLE MKIII and MKIV songs.

Hughes spent key years of his career as the beloved bassist and vocalist of DEEP PURPLE, appearing on the classic albums "Burn", "Stormbringer" and "Come Taste The Band".

Glenn's current solo band features Søren Andersen (guitar),Ash Sheehan (drums) and Bob Fridzema (keyboards).

Hughes, who was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2016 along with fellow DEEP PURPLE members Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Jon Lord, Rod Evans, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover and Ian Paice, spent more than three years recording and touring as the frontman of the supergroup THE DEAD DAISIES.

Glenn's BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION supergroup with guitarist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (LED ZEPPELIN) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (DREAM THEATER, ALICE COOPER, BILLY IDOL) will release its fifth album, "V", in June.

Currently at home in Los Angeles, but the road is calling me…

Very busy year ahead, touring Europe & the United...
