Back in February, it was announced that a new Gary Moore album – featuring previously unreleased original songs and never-before-heard alternate versions of Moore favorites – would be released in April.

Titled How Blue Can You Get, news of the album came with the release of its first single, the Moore-penned ballad, "In My Dreams." 

Now, a second single from the album – a previously unreleased cover of Freddie King's "I'm Tore Down" – has been unveiled. You can check it out below.

Compiled from recordings in the Moore family archives, How Blue Can You Get heavily showcases Moore's love for classic blues, with versions of Elmore James' "Done Somebody Wrong" and additional, previously unreleased takes on Memphis Slim's "Steppin' Out" and BB King's 1964 hit, "How Blue Can You Get."

It's set for an April 30 release via Provogue.
