Rock & Roll is the first new original song Kingfish has recorded since the May, 2019 release of his Grammy-nominated debut album, Kingfish. This intense soulful ballad is a tribute to his mother, Princess Pride, who died in late 2019. He recorded his moving vocals and impassioned guitar solos in Memphis at Willie Mitchell's famed Royal Studios. The song was produced by Nick Goldston.
According to Ingram, "Rock & Roll is a special song. It’s a track about my relationship with my biggest champion — my mom. The lyrics are true to life and are a reflection of her dedication to me as her son. I would not be where I am today without her unwavering love and support. Further, as a musician who is recognized for blues, the chorus is important because it refers to the Robert Johnson ‘selling his soul’ story, and is a direct nod to blues history and its influence on rock & roll."
