Seasick Steve releases new album 'Love & Peace' May 22nd
10 March 2020
New single and title track out now
Seasick Steve is set to release his new album, ‘Love & Peace’, on May 22nd via Contagious Records (distributed by ADA).
‘Love & Peace’ sees Steve mixing up all of his much-loved ingredients to deliver a fresh new record that offers the perfect antidote for the troubled times in which we live. Full of hope for the future, it’s a great mix of boogie, blues, rock, Americana and folk – all delivered in Seasick Steve’s unique style. It’s a sizzler of an album that he can’t wait to release.
“In these crazy times seems to me there just ain’t enough love and peace to go around,” says Steve. “I ain’t exactly sure what this here record got to do with love and peace, but I figured I’d call it that anyways!”
Produced and written by Seasick Steve, this album sees him breaking with tradition. While some of it was recorded in his barn, the majority was recorded in Los Angeles at Studio 606 and at East West Studio 3. The album was mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) and Steve at East West.
Steve’s long-term drummer Dan Magnusson (a.k.a. Crazy Dan) is of course featured on the record, along with some amazing contributions from guitarist Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) and harmonica player Malcolm Arison (The BossHoss).
Steve adds, “This was recorded on 2” analogue tape, mixed to analogue tape and for the vinyl it was cut from the 1/2” master tape direct to lathe. ‘Old skool’, no computer, hear what I’m sayin’? I hope you like it ok. Adios amigos!”
‘Love & Peace’ is now available for pre-order on CD limited edition clear vinyl, and standard black vinyl formats from www.seasicksteve.com. It will also be available to download and stream here.
Steve will hit the road later this month for a European headline tour that ends with a big Saturday night show at London’s historic Roundhouse on April 4th. He’ll then embark upon a summer festival schedule. With a clutch of fantastic new songs to hand and the most rocking show you’ll see this year, Seasick Steve is raring to go and will deliver for his fans, old and new, wherever he goes.
