Bonamassa previewed Royal Tea with a song/video for “Why Does It Take So Long To Say Goodbye”:

This whole adventure,” said Joe Bonamassa of this project, “was a bucket-list thing for me. I would have been about twelve years old, and it was the sound I heard in my head. Like, ‘OK, I’m in. That’s what I want to be’.”

The 10 songs on Royal Tea were co-written by Bonamassa and musical friends including Bernie Marsden, ex-Cream lyricist Pete Brown and Jools Holland. Here’s the track listing:

1. When One Door Opens
2. Royal Tea
3. Why Does It Take So Long To Say Goodbye
4. Lookout Man!
5. High Class Girl
6. A Conversation With Alice
7. I Didn’t Think She Would Do it
8. Beyond The Silence
9. Lonely Boy
10. Savannah
