The release finds Scaggs mixing original material with a few covers with all recorded in a three day period at Memphis’ Royal Studios, the home of the late-Willie Mitchell. Joining Boz on the album are Willie Weeks (bass), Ray Parker Jr. (guitars), Spooner Oldham (keyboards), the Memphis Horns, Lester Snell (string arrangements) and Steve Jordan (drums).

Scaggs told Rolling Stone “It’s one of the easiest projects I’ve ever had. I sang songs that feel entirely comfortable to me. We recorded the 13 tracks to this record in three days. It just sort of fell out easily in the nicest way.”

Memphis will be released through Universal Music Australia on March 8.

MEMPHIS track listing:

1) Cadillac Walk
2) Change My Mind
3) Corrina Corrina
4) Dry Spell
5) Mixed Up Shook Up Girl
