The Rev. Shawn Amos announced the details for his next album this week.
Amos will release his new album, Blue Sky April 17. The 10-song album is his first with his new band, The Brotherhood. The band is composed of Brady Blade (Dave Matthews, Indigo Girls) on drums, Chrisopher Thomas (Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Macy Gray) on bass and Amos’ longtime friend and guitarist Chris “Doctor” Roberts.
Amos talked about Blue Sky‘s creation during a recent interview.
“On this album, I wanted to connect the dots between my current love of blues and my singer-songwriter past,” he said. “When I first started recording blues material, I pulled up the bridge behind my Americana catalogue. Five years into this blues journey, I was ready to revisit that terrain, but in the end, I really believe the blues music is roots music. Making this album has allowed me to bring both sides of myself as a writer together.”
The track listing for Blue Sky is noted below. The band debuted the lyric video for the album’s lead single ‘Counting Down The Days‘ Oct. 29. The song is available to stream and download now through Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play and Amos’ official YouTube channel. Pre-orders for the album will open Feb. 14.
Tour dates in support of the album will be announced soon. More information on the Rev. Sean Amos’ new album is available online now along with all of his latest news at:
