This is ‘Sound & Color’ – the massively anticipated follow-up to Alabama Shakes’ UK Top Three charting, four time Grammy nominated debut album ‘Boys & Girls’ on by Rough Trade Records.

Since the release of the Athens, Alabama group’s critically acclaimed 2012 album ‘Boys & Girls’ which has sold over a million copies worldwide, the band have been nominated for a Brit and Q Award, contributed music to the Oscar-winning films ‘Twelve Years A Slave’, ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, performed at The White House alongside Mavis Staples and Justin Timberlake for Barack and Michelle Obama, and become one of the most celebrated live acts in the world having delivered unforgettable performances everywhere from Jools Holland to the main stages of festivals including Glastonbury. They have also just been announced as the Friday night headliners of this year’s Great Escape Festival.

‘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,” ‘Sound & Color’ builds on Alabama Shakes’ soulful blues-rock base and maps a surprising, innovative new direction.

“We took our time to write this record, and I’m really glad we did,” says lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard. “We were able to sit down and think about what’s exciting to us. This record is full of genre-bending songs.”

‘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.
