Dave Stewart draws heavily on the blues in new album

His electro-pop anthem Sweet Dreams remains one of the most recognisable tracks of the 80s and was the first of a string of hits for Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox of Eurythmics.

But for his latest album, Dave Stewart has drawn heavily on the blues he heard growing up in Sunderland, as he tells the story of his life through the songs.

Ebony McQueen is a 26 track epic – which will also become a film – featuring a fictional “voodoo queen” who visits a boy very much in need of the blues.
