Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry will be released on November 15th as the first in a trilogy of tribute albums.

London, UK (September 9, 2019) -- Artist, author, producer and raconteur Ronnie Wood returns to his greatest love, music, with the release of his new album Ronnie Wood with His Wild Five - Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry.

Released by BMG on 15 November, the 11-track album was recorded live at Wimborne's Tivoli Theatre last year and is a loving nod to one of Ronnie's musical heroes, Chuck Berry. The album features guest appearances from singer Imelda May and pianist Ben Waters. Featuring tracks including "Tribute to Chuck Berry" written by Wood and "Worried Life Blues" written by Maceo Merriweather, and with the album artwork hand-painted by Ronnie himself, Mad Lad will be available digitally, on CD, on heavyweight vinyl, deluxe box set (CD, LP and 12x12 artcard of the album artwork) and in a super deluxe limited-edition box set (including CD, LP, 12x12 art print, signed and numbered set list and T-Shirt).

The album will be the first in a trilogy to be recorded by Wood and the band in the coming years, each paying tribute to Ronnie's musical heroes. Ronnie chose Chuck Berry for the first album as he has been a lifelong fan, has toured with him and also, to honour his sad passing just over two years ago.

The album is released as Ronnie is due to be honoured at the London Film Festival (12th October) with the premiere of the Mike Figgis directed Somebody Up There Likes Me, an in-depth documentary about Ronnie's life and careers both in the Rolling Stones and in the art studio. The film will be released in early 2020.

In high cotton: Charlie Musselwhite is thoroughly content with his return to the Delta. “We love living here,” he says. “It just makes sense, and it feels like the blues is alive and well in the Delta and you can just feel it rising up from the earth, it’s so present.”

On his new album, Mississippi Son, the harmonica giant steps out on guitar, evoking the legends of country blues 6-string and earning his place among them.

For Charlie Musselwhite, the blues isn’t just a style of music. It’s a sacrament. And Musselwhite is one of its high priests. With a palmful of bent notes on the harmonica—the instrument on which he’s been an acknowledged master for more than a half-century—or the fat snap of a guitar string, he has the power to summon not only the blues’ great spirits, but the places they rose from. If you listen closely, you can envision the Mississippi Delta’s plantation lands, where the summer sun forms a shimmering belt on the low horizon and even a slight breeze can paint your face red with clay dust. It’s a place both old and eternal—full of mystery and history and magic. And the music from that place, as Musselwhite sings in his new song “Blues Gave Me a Ride,” “tells the truth in a world full of lies.”
