Today, Monday, June 21, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram announced the dates for his upcoming tour to promote his dynamic new Alligator Records album, 662, set for July 23 release.

Today also saw the premiere of Ingram's Juke Joint Live music video for the album's first single, the title track, 662.

“Obviously this hiatus was necessary," says Ingram, "but it’s been a long, tough period for a lot of people. I was fortunate to stay healthy and I certainly tried my best to stay productive during my downtime. Now, with my new album release and my latest Juke Joint tour both happening in July, I’m thankful and excited for what’s to come. But, I’m also reflective and sympathetic for everyone who has been adversely impacted by Covid in any way.”

The first single, 662's title track, made its worldwide premiere on SiriusXM's B.B. King's Bluesville channel. The song immediately became the #1 Most Added Single on the influential BDS AAA (Adult Album Alternative) Indicator Radio Chart. Guitar World, who in 2020 named Kingfish one of the top 30 guitarists in the world, said, "On 662, Ingram takes things all the way back to the place that shaped him, his hometown of Clarksdale, Mississippi. Anchoring the song with a hot-rodded, Delta-by-way-of-Chuck Berry riff, and punctuating the proceedings with sweet touches of high-gain, fleet-fingered blues guitar glory, Ingram gives a perfect tribute to the birthplace of the blues, showing all the while that the genre is still incredibly vital."

Of the new album, Ingram says, "662 is an ode to my roots, a nod to the area where I was born and raised. The title track, 662, encompasses how a small corner of the earth influenced my view of life and music. It also points to the growth I have had since my debut album. As much as I have been fortunate to get 'Outside Of This Town' (the title of his breakout single from his 2019 Grammy-nominated debut album, Kingfish), I do want people to know that the '662' will always be a major part of who I am."
