Their first studio album, Revelator, was named Best Blues album at the 2012 Grammy Awards. The Tedeschi Trucks Band has since toured continuously, last year releasing the well received live recording Everybody’s Talkin’.
On August 20, the Band’s second original studio album, Made Up Mind, will be released. Produced by Jim Scott and Derek Trucks, and recorded at Trucks and Tedeschi’s own Swamp Raga Studio, the disc features eleven tracks that the Band describes as “energetic and powerful” with a sound that is “timeless and characteristically difficult to classify.”
Not everyone reports that same difficulty. When the Band previewed some of the new album tracks at a recent Minnesota show, the reviewer classified Susan’s vocals as “amazing” and Derek’s guitar work as “flawless”. New song “I Know”, said the critic, “is reason enough to order your copy in advance.”
Leading up to the album release, the Tedeschi Trucks Band has offered an audio stream and download of new track “Part of Me”. Written by Derek and Doyle Bramhall II, the song features Susan’s soaring vocals with support from band member Saunders Sermons. Listen below.
