20-year old Mississippi Delta-bred blues guitar prodigy Christone “Kingfish” Ingram is gearing up to release his debut studio album, Kingfish, on May 17th via Alligator Records. The young sensation has received huge praise from the blues community over the last several years for his live collaborations and online YouTube videos.

Kingfish has released his first official single off of his debut record, “Fresh Out”, featuring mentor and blues hero Buddy Guy. The song is a slow blues ballad chock-full of soul, as well as gritty blues guitar solos traded off between Kingfish and Guy. Kingfish explains to Rolling Stone, “For my first record, I wanted to come out and give what I was known for in the beginning, which was traditional blues.” Kingfish did just that, and it will be interesting to see any other surprises he has in store off of his forthcoming debut album.

Listen to Kingfish’s new track “Fresh Out” featuring Buddy Guy below:

Along with a plethora of solo performances and festival appearances, Kingfish is teaming up with Buddy Guy this spring for 10 special performances throughout the U.S. In August and September, Kingfish will target a completely different audience, offering support for indie rock act Vampire Weekend.
