North Mississippi Allstars’ World Boogie Is Coming is Coming in September
The North Mississippi Allstars have confirmed that their seventh album, World Boogie Is Coming, is set for release on September 3.
The record, which the group produced themselves, will be complimented by a good bit of visual content. Guitarist Luther Dickinson said of the album, ““This is not just a record but an ongoing film project. It is a soundtrack to Cody’s films. Cody has discovered a love of filmmaking and knows that in this day and age you need multi media. He set out to use our landscape of modern day Mississippi and roadwork experiences to share with the audience a vision, a dreamscape of our world. We wanted the World Boogie Is Coming package to have as much visual content as possible, with the record itself being sonically cinematic, a montage of medleys similar to our live shows — the recording fell together beautifully with that intent. We set ambient microphones up around the whole studio — footsteps, rain, wind, talking, bugs and birds all played their part. Archival tapes of Otha and R.L. fell right into the pocket as soon as we transferred them, laughing, joking and jamming with their kids —transcending time and space, life and death.”
In keeping with the visual theme, the North Mississippi Allstars have released a trailer for the album, which can be viewed above.
