Bobby Rush Releases New Single and Video
“You’re Gonna Need a Man Like Me”
Forthcoming Album All My Love For You
Out August 18 via Thirty Tigers
July 28, 2023: Today, the two-time GRAMMY winner, Blues Hall of Famer, and 16-time Blues Music Awards winner Bobby Rush released his video for “You’re Gonna Need a Man Like Me,” the newest single from his upcoming album All My Love For You. The full-length will be released on August 18 via Deep Rush Records / Thirty Tigers, and is currently available for pre-order.
Bobby Rush explains: “I was talking about the things I should have done and things I’ve done. You’ll realize later the things I did were great things. When you do all you can, it may not be enough, but it’s enough in your heart. One of these days you will find out what I did is okay and you’re gonna need a man like me. When you are with another man who didn’t do as good as I did, you’ll realize what I did was enough.”
About All My Love For You, Rush adds: “I wanted to approach this album to be a collection of songs for how I got to where I am now. Sonically I made albums in different directions recently like the solo acoustic Rawer than Raw and full production album Porcupine Meat. I wanted to do something that had the rawness in it, the commercial side of it, and have the Blackness and whiteness inside of it. I want to thank people for letting me be myself. Now I have crossed over but I haven’t crossed out. With the title, I wasn’t talking just about a woman, but everyone who has anything to do with Bobby Rush: the fans, the media, the promoters, the label and distributor, booking agents, management, and anyone else who has contributed to my life and career, this is All My Love For You.”
Bobby Rush is on tour throughout the rest of the year and will perform at AmericanaFest in Nashville this September, followed by a run of east coast dates with Buddy Guy in October. Find a full list of tour dates below or visit his website.
