Albert Cummings Releases New Song “Red Rooster”Ahead of Upcoming Album Believe
“A real raw Blues Rock bomb,” says PhotoConcerts.com of Albert Cummings rendition of Blues classic “Red Rooster,” now available. Cummings chose to recreate the world-renowned song as a way to pay tribute to famed Blues writer, Willie Dixon. The guitar virtuoso prepares to release his album Believe, via Provogue Records on Feb. 14. Believe is currently available for pre-order.
With grit and soul, Cummings turns the classic into one of his own, breaking it up with guitar riffs the rocker has become known for. “Red Rooster has been recreated so many times I wanted to make sure I made it my own,” he says of the song, “In my opinion, Willie Dixon is one of the greatest Blues writes of all time, so I knew I really had to show up for this song! I’m really happy with how it came out!”
A traditional blues standard song, “Little Red Rooster” is one of the “500 Songs That Shaped Rock N’ Roll,” having been covered by The Doors, Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stone and countless others, it’s no wonder the masterful Blues Rock guitarist took on the classic to create a rendition of his own.
The upcoming album, Believe, features a flavorful mix of blues, country, and rock n’ roll creating a crossbred of genres. Cummings takes this release to new heights with the help of GRAMMY Award-winning producer Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Santana). Together, they drew inspiration from the rich recording legacy of FAME Studio in Muscle Shoals and created a timeless album full of rhythm, funk, and soul through the use of powerful backup singers, steady grooves, a dynamic brass section, and mesmerizing guitar riffs.
With a career of recording music that spans nearly 20 years, Cummings has built a reputation through his live performance, bringing the audience on a musical roller coaster. He enchantingly brings his guitar alive in ways that have honored him and earned him praise from the King of Blues himself, B.B. King, while others have drawn comparisons to legends like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix.
Cummings will tour throughout next year in support of the new album. His dynamic, engaging personality combined with blues musicianship at its finest has created an enduring, loyal fan base worldwide.
