The follow-up to Hugh Laurie's 2011 debut Let Them Talk, Didn't It Rain sees the actor/singer departing the sounds of New Orleans and following the blues upstream and into the American heartland.

It includes songs dating back to early pioneers WC Handy (St Louis Blues) and Jelly Roll Morton (I Hate A Man Like You) to more recent artists such as Dr John (Wild Honey) and Alan Price of The Animals (Changes).

"I have resolved to forge on, deeper into the forest of American music that has enchanted me since I was a small boy," says 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."

Watch Laurie discuss the making of the album here.

Again produced by Joe Henry, Didn't It Rain was recorded at Ocean Way Studio in Los Angeles in January of this year.
