Sound & Color (ATO Records) – the follow-up to Alabama Shakes’ Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girls, which earned the group GRAMMY® nominations in three categories, including Best New Artist– is out today. It is available now at all music retailers, including iTunes and Amazon, and via the band’s website and the ATO Records webstore.
Alabama Shakes will celebrate the release of Sound & Color with a performance on the outdoor stage of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” tonight. Earlier in the evening, Alabama Shakeswill visit Amoeba Hollywood for a limited album signing. The band is currently on the road and has just added a trio of East Coast dates. See below for itinerary and ticket information.
In a new video premiering today, lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard takes fans behind the scenes to see how the vinyl editions of Sound & Color were handcrafted by the artisans at United Record Pressing (formerly Southern Plastics) in Nashville, TN – the facility that pressed the Beatles’ first U.S. 7″ and groundbreaking albums across all genres.
