‘Sound & Color’ – the massively anticipated follow-up to Alabama Shakes’ UK Top Three charting, four time Grammy nominated debut album ‘Boys & Girls’ - will be released on 20th April by Rough Trade Records.

‘Sound & Color’ demonstrates the tremendous strides made by a group of twenty-something musicians who had only been playing together for a few months when they recorded their first album. From the gently swaying, chiming title song to the garage-rock freak-out on “The Greatest” to the psychedelic space jam “Gemini,” ‘Sound & Color’ builds on Alabama Shakes’ soulful blues-rock base and maps a surprising, innovative new direction.

“We took our time to write this record, and I’m really glad we did,” says lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard. “We were able to sit down and think about what’s exciting to us. This record is full of genre-bending songs.”

‘Sound & Color’ was recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium studio. The band co-produced the album with Blake Mills—a young guitar wizard who has played alongside Lana Del Ray.
