After the huge success of his debut album LET THEM TALK on which he celebrated and revived classic material from the world of NOLA blues, Hugh Laurie releases his second album DIDN'T IT RAIN.

DIDN'T IT RAIN sees Hugh Laurie depart the sounds of New Orleans as he follows the trajectory of the blues upstream and into the American heartland. It includes songs dating back to early pioneers W.C. Handy (‘St Louis. Blues’) and Jelly Roll Morton (‘I Hate A Man Like You’) to more recent artists such as Dr. John (‘Wild Honey’).

“I have resolved to forge on, deeper into the forest of American music that has enchanted me since I was a small boy,” explains Laurie. “And the further I go, the more bewitched I become – both by the songs and by the people I have been lucky enough to play them with.”

Again produced by Joe Henry, DIDN'T IT RAIN was recorded at Ocean Way Studio in Los Angeles in January of this year. Complemented with the heart and accomplishment of his supporting musicians the Copper Bottom Band. The album also highlights a very special guest in the shape of the Grammy-winning blues artist Taj Mahal who contributes vocals to a new take on Little Brother Montgomery's ‘Vicksburg Blues’.

This limited edition Bookpack features five extra bonus tracks alongside over 40 colour pages of exclusive photographs and content.
