Shaking It Up

Alabama Shakes have unveiled new sin­gle ‘Don’t Wanna Fight’ from their upcom­ing highly antic­i­pated album Sound & Color.

Since their crit­i­cally acclaimed 2012 album Boys & Girls which has sold over a mil­lion copies world­wide, the band have been been busy con­tribut­ing music to Oscar-winning films, per­formed at The White House, and become one of the most cel­e­brated live acts in the world hav­ing deliv­ered unfor­get­table per­for­mances every­where. Sound & Color demon­strates the tremen­dous strides made by a group of twenty-something musi­cians who had only been play­ing together for a few months when they recorded their first album. From the gen­tly sway­ing, chim­ing title song to the garage-rock freak-out on ‘The Great­est’ to the psy­che­delic space jam ‘Gem­ini,’ Alabama Shakes build on the soul­ful blues-rock base and map a sur­pris­ing, inno­v­a­tive new direc­tion. Sound & Color was recorded at Nashville’s Sound Empo­rium stu­dio. The band co-produced the album with Blake Mills—a young gui­tar wiz­ard who has played along­side Lana Del Ray.
