The long wait for Jonny Lang fans is almost over. Lang has signed with the Mascot Label Group and will release his first new album in seven years in September 2013 called ‘Fight For My Soul’

Lang has been working for three years on the album with producer Tommy Sims who co-wrote Eric Clapton’sChange The World.

The press release says the album ‘defies genre categorization’. Those of us that saw Lang’s concert at Grand Falls Casino in Larchwood, Iowa earlier this year can vouch for that assessment. Lang has gone from being an unapolgetic blues man with his 1996 release ‘Lie To Me’ when he was just 16, to incorporating elements of jazz and world music into his style.

Lang was asked why it’s taken so long between records to release the follow-up to his Grammy Award winning ‘Turn Around’ album in 2006:

“This particular record has taken quite a long time to finish for a lot of different reasons. “Most of all, I started having kids a few years back. Between being with the family, and being out on the road touring, the last thing you want to do when home is to go make a record. I’m really happy with the body of work we have for this one. It’s kind of hard to be excited and know what the record going to be like when the process is extended over such a long period of time. Today, sitting here, I’m really proud of the recordings.”

Personally, I’ve been a fan since seeing a 15-year old Kid Jonny Lang & The Big Bang at a small festival in the Twin Cities in the mid-90’s, so I’m willing to listen with an open mind, while secretly hoping there is something to rival his earlier recordings.
