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.
