North Mississippi Allstars to release new album ‘World Boogie Is Coming’ and tour UK in October7 October 2013
North Mississippi Allstars have announced the UK release of their new career-defining record, ‘World Boogie Is Coming‘, on October 21 through Songs Of The South/Thirty Tigers. This is the seventh studio record for the band recently crowned “Americana music luminaries” by National Public Radio in the US, and will be supported by a series of UK headline shows, including London’s 100 Club on Wednesday, October 23.
Luther Dickinson says, “It all started when Seasick Steve told me: ‘You are the one, you are the link, you have to keep it primitive and take it to the people.’” He continues, “I feel like I owe it the elders who taught me the traditional music in which I operate to let the music evolve and allow outside modern influences into the tradition to keep it alive and healthy. I realized that I had not been holding up my end of the deal. Since I am virtually devoid of modern influences, I turned to my brother Cody, who is my opposite in taste and style and loves modern music and production. Allowing Cody to produce the tracking sessions allowed me to sing and play wild and with abandon. Our contrasting styles are the heart of NMA.”
‘World Boogie Is Coming’ is the record that perfectly ties it all together, fusing all the elements that have made the Allstars special while pushing the band’s sound further into the future than ever before.
