Alabama Shakes Announce New Album “Sound & Color”; Preorder Now

Alabama Shakes announced today that they will be releasing the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2012 Grammy-nominated debut. The new album is titled Sound & Color and will be released on April 21, 2015. Pre-order the album now, and you’ll receive an instant download of the first single, “Don’t Wanna Fight”.

Preorder “Sound & Color”:
iTunes | Amazon | ATO Official Store | Local Record Store (CD or Vinyl)


“We took our time to write this record, and I’m really glad we did,” says Brittany Howard, lead singer and guitarist of Alabama Shakes, about the band’s new album Sound & Color. “We were able to sit down and think about what’s exciting to us, explore all the things we wanted to on our first album. This record is full of genre-bending songs—it’s even harder now when people ask, ‘What kind of band are you?’ I have no clue.”

The album’s twelve songs reveal a band honed by years on the road, and drawing from a wide range of influences. The bluesy groove of “Shoegaze” or the garage-rock freak-out on “The Greatest” give way to the psychedelic space jam  “Gemini.” The gently swaying, chiming title song opens the album with what Howard calls “more of a visual thing, I think of this whole scene going on,” then explodes into the urgent, tightly-coiled funk of “Don’t Wanna Fight.” Long instrumental intros and passages create hazy atmosphere, and then the intensity of Howard’s vocals snaps everything back into riveting focus.

Listen to “Chippewa” from Benjamin Booker: Live at Third Man Records, Out Now

Listen to a live version of “Chippewa” from Benjamin Booker’s Live at Third Man Records album, out now, at Rolling Stone here. The album is available on limited edition vinyl at the Third Man Record store.

Booker said of the release, “This record is the result of a year on the road. Its the best nights of my life and nights I would give anything to take back. It’s sleeping in parking lots and sleeping with people for beds. It’s eating bad food with good folks. It’s makeups and breakups. It’s missing home and never wanting to go back.

“Somehow I’m still here. Somehow the boys and I managed to keep things going. We learned from each other. We grew tighter as a band. The songs changed and on the night of September 24th we stepped into that building in Nashville to capture that.

“Thank you Mr. White and everyone at Third Man Records for welcoming me into your home and giving me a chance to share something I’m proud of, the live show.”

Gill Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show Announces His ATO Debut – Out March 3rd

ATO is thrilled to be releasing Gill Landry’s new solo album on March 3rd. Landry’s illustrious career as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriting member of the Grammy-Award winning band Old Crow Medicine Show includes a recent induction into the Grand Ole Opry, performances on “A Prairie Home Companion” & “Austin City Limits,” and world tours with featured stops at major festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, and the Newport Folk Festival.

The 10-track album was fully produced and mostly engineered by Landry and recorded in what he calls, “a ramshackle, shanty-ass apartment on the south side of Nashville.” Contributors include various friends and musicians Landry gathered on his nonstop travels alone and with Old Crow including songstress Laura Marling who duets on “Take This Body,” singer-songwriter and guitarist Robert Ellis, trumpeter Nick Etwell of Mumford & Sons and Odessa Jorgensen who lends harmonies and fiddle to a number of tunes.

Check out the lead single “Just Like You” below and pre-order the album in the ATO webshop or on iTunes.

Landry will be on tour with Justin Townes Earle for the bulk of February and March and will be headed to SXSW after that.
