Royal Tea

This album is a must for all Bonamassa Fans and I know that Joe rates Paul Rodgers as his personal favourite singer but trust me, Joe's voice is every bit as good.

The wait is over, Joe Bonamassa’s new solo studio album Royal Tea,inspired by his British guitar heroes Jeff Beck, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Eric Clapton and Cream, was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and will be released on October 23rd via Provogue/J&R Adventures. Bonamassa also surprised his fans this past Friday with his latest single, “Why Does It Take So Long To Say Goodbye”. noblepr

  • Blues Rock Review

    The willingness to reconceive this era rather than just revisit it makes Royal Tea a great album and an intriguing listen.

  • Rock and Blues Muse

    Bonamassa is a huge talent and a true believer in the power and relevance of this thing of ours. His British inflection on Royal Tea is a smashing success that will take you across the pond in a hurry.

  • Maximum Volume Music

    This is not Bonamassa doing anything totally unexpected, given that you always expect him to challenge himself anyway. It is another different side to the artist, though. And here, the Made In England stamp at the bottom of the album sleeve is the all-important thing.

  • The Rockpit

    The British undertones throughout this album are just that – subtle & glorious and once more Joe Bonamassa’s long-time producer Kevin Shirley was behind the desk recording the wonderful ‘Royal Tea’. Fans old & new will just love this album and once again one of the busiest singer/songwriter/guitarists has delivered a record of outstanding quality. Styles, sounds & differing vibes aplenty Bonamassa once again shows he can do very little wrong.

  • Rock 'N' Load Magazine

    Royal Tea is everything and more that I expected from Joe Bonamassa, a beautifully delivered album from a master of his craft. In these surreal times, you can always rely on Joe to bring a little comfort to the masses with another beauty to site alongside his formidable catalog and yet, still have us begging for more.

  • SonicAbuse

    The sound of a young boy, sat in his bedroom and dreaming of the sound of the crowd, Royal Tea has a freshness and innocence to it that feels utterly untainted by the machinations of the music industry and is an album to be treasured.

  • All Music

    a chiming bit of soul-pop.

  • Stereoboard

    ‘Royal Tea’ may abandon its British blues theme towards the end, with Beyond The Silence a typically dusky Bonamassa epic and Savannah pastoral Americana, but both are very strong cuts on a lovingly crafted album that, although not quite the sprawling, fully-realised artistic statement of 2018’s ‘Redemption’, treats mediocrity, not to mention creative stagnation, with the same level of contempt the Caped Crusader usually reserves for a dangerous criminal in clown makeup.

    Let’s just say Bonamassa fans will be surprised at this album, but they certainly won’t be disappointed! Speaking of which, I must get my order in for the limited edition with the 12 songs!

  • Louder

    Joe Bonamassa's Royal Tea is meaty, beaty, big and bouncy.

  • Liverpool Sound and Vision

    A dramatic and buoyant album, one of greatness and faithfulness combined; a Royal Tea that knows exactly how to stir the emotions to the perfect brew.

  • Total Ntertainment

    Ripped through with energy, spiced up with a sense of awakening and some intrumentalisation that is steeped in the extraordinary.
