Boz Scaggs' new album, Memphis, hits stores today.  The album is the first from Scaggs since 2008's Speak Low and features 12 tracks, a mix of originals and covers.

Memphis is on the 429 Records label.  Preview clips of nearly all of the songs on the album can be heard at the label's official website

Scaggs will hit the road in support of Memphis starting with a March 21 show in Modesto, California and concluding with a show in Las Vegas on June 22.  Visit Boz Scagg's Facebook page for the complete itinerary.
