Robert Randolph and the Family Band are recently returned from Oklahoma City where their performance at Friday’s “We Can Help Moore” benefit helped to raise thousands in relief funds for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Big hearts, big talent…..big news!
On July 16 the Band will release their first new studio album in three years on the Blue Note label. Lickety Split offers eleven original tracks plus covers of “Love Rollercoaster” (Ohio Players) and “Good Lovin” (The Rascals). The album features the Band’s current lineup including Marcus Randolph, Danyel Morgan, Lenesha Randolph and Brett Haas, and includes guest appearances from Trombone Shorty and Carlos Santana.
To preview the new album, a stream of the uplifting, gospel influenced “Born Again” has been released. Listen to the original track below, and get ready to groove.
Lickety Split is available for pre-order here.
