Black Country Communion, the supergroup featuring legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep PurpleBlack Sabbath),guitarist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream TheaterAlice CooperBilly Idol),has shared the official music video for its new single, Letting Go. The track is taken from the band’s fifth studio album, V, which is being released today (June 14th).

Resonating with the band’s signature fusion of hard rock and soul-stirring blues, Letting Go stands as a testament to Black Country Communion‘s growth and mutual admiration, symbolizing their commitment to producing music that is authentic, heartfelt, and reflective of their shared experiences and vast musical expertise.

“This band allows me to embrace all of it,” comments Bonamassa. “It’s funny because the four musicians up here — everybody brings a certain thing to this that’s very specific. Every part is irreplaceable. For me, it’s about playing old-style rock guitar, loud.”

Hughes adds, “We make music for the five of us. We make music that we love and like, hoping it registers with everyone else. We don’t make it for record companies, or this guy or that guy.” 

Sherinian credits producer Kevin Shirleyfor keeping the band’s creative energies focused, adding, “We’ve got to give Kevin Shirley massive credit because he controls. He keeps it all flowing.”
