"The Blues Don’t Lie" is the new album from Buddy Guy, and is the legend’s 34th studio album, and the follow up to 2018’s "The Blues Is Alive And Well". Produced by songwriter and drummer Tom Hambridge, "The Blues Don’t Lie" features guests including Mavis Staples, Elvis Costello, James Taylor, Jason Isbell, and more.

The album will be released exactly 65 years to the day that Buddy Guy arrive in Chicago on a train from Baton Rouge, Louisiana in September of 1957, with just the clothes on his back and his guitar. His life would never be the same, and he was born again in the blues. "The Blues Don’t Lie" tells the story of his lifelong journey.

Reflecting on this body of work, Buddy says, “I promised them all, BB, Muddy, Sonny Boy, as long as I’m alive I’m going to keep the blues alive”. He has indeed proven that again, and proclaims, “I can’t wait for world to hear my new album cause 'The Blues Don’t Lie'.”
