Glenn Hughes unplugs for California Breed session

Glenn Hughes unplugged to perform a few songs from the new California Breed album while visiting UK’s Planet Rock recently, and the station is sharing video from the session.

Hughes ran through acoustic versions of “The Grey” and “Breathe” from the band’s self-titled debut album, due out May 20.

California Breed is the new band formed by Hughes and Jason Bonham (with guitarist Andrew Watt) from the ashes of supergroup Black Country Communion.

Produced by Dave Cobb (Jamey Johnson, Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings), “California Breed” was recorded at Cobb's Nashville studio and features equal co-writing credits among the three-man lineup.

"I'd gotten into Dave's work via the Rival Sons, who I know and really love, “ explains Hughes. “But Dave has done a lot of great stuff. That whole Nashville trip which Dave is a part of. Well, me and Jason don't want to sound like anyone else, we already sound like ourselves, but we felt we needed some fresh energy — and Dave absolutely brought it."
