Blues Pills release the new version of their track »California« featuring Marc Broussard on guest vocals

Swedish heavy blues rockers Blues Pills have released the new version of their track »California« featuring Marc Broussard on guest vocals. »California« comes from the band’s latest studio album, »Holy Moly!«, which was released in 2020 via Nuclear Blast Records.

You can also watch the unreleased music video for the original song. Says the band: “A few summers ago we made this video for one of our favorite songs from the »Holy Moly!« album, »California«. A song about a place, a state of mind and a feeling of longing. This is a song for the summer, and when it ends it’s stuck with you as a dear memory. The video never got released back then, so we wanted to give it to you now. To celebrate the summer and that we are finally back on the road again.”

“For a long time we thought of doing something more with our sing »California«. We invited the outstanding soul blues singer and artist Marc Broussard to perform with us for the new version of »California«. And here is the result. Enjoy.” Blues Pills adds.

Listen to the new single on all major streaming platforms.

In celebration of the tour start, Blues Pills have released a new version of the song »California« which was originally featured on their latest album, »Holy Moly!« (2020). This new, more laid-back version features acclaimed US bayou soul singer Marc Broussard on guest vocals. You can listen to the single below.

The wait is over and Blues Pills finally return to stages all over Europe. The tour includes some of the biggest festivals from Donington’s legendary Download, to the massive Hellfest and the alternative rock twins Southside / Hurricane in Germany, as well as selected club shows to present their latest third album »Holy Moly!« and other fan favorites.

The band comments: “It is two years ago when we started our new album campaign with the release of the »Proud Woman« single and the pandemic stopped all live activities. We can’t wait to finally present the »Holy Moly!« songs live and celebrate the power of music with you. Music is an universal language of love and peace – something that is well needed. Looking forward to see you soon. Peace!”
