Kandace Springs Returns With Indigo
Her Broad-ranging New Album Out Sept. 7
Produced By Karriem Riggins

Springs Announces Fall Headline Tour
Following Summer-long North American Tour
Supporting Daryl Hall & John Oates

Singer and pianist Kandace Springs has announced a September 7 release date for her remarkable second album Indigo (Blue Note), a 13-track LP of originals and choice covers that showcases the full breadth of Kandace’s artistry from smoldering R&B (“Piece of Me”) to gorgeous jazz ballads (“Unsophisticated” featuring Roy Hargrove) to the pop songcraft of “Breakdown” and “Don’t Need The Real Thing,” the album’s lead single which is out today. All but two tracks are produced by drummer/producer Karriem Riggins (Common, Erykah Badu) with additional production by Jamie Hartman (Rag’n’Bone Man), Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae), and Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken (Rihanna). Indigo is available to pre-order now on vinyl, CD or download.

For Kandace it boils down to a question that connects past to present: “What would Nina Simone do if she had the technology of today? You could never put Nina in a box—she would do a blues followed a classical piece, a jazz standard and then a Beatles cover. This LP took a lot of inspiration from that—it’s a mix of everything that I am.” Indigo offers a fairly plausible answer to that impossible query: songs that swirl classical composition with quiet-storm cool, jazz poise with hip-hop swing, tropical warmth with soulful depth, and earthen groove with airy psych.

Given that diverse palette, Karriem was exactly the right person to work with Kandace to catalyze the best parts of various interests into something new. “I love crossing genres and the direction on Indigo was to marry all the different things to tell her story,” says Karriem, who tracked his drums at various studios while on the road with Diana Krall, and chopped and reassembled his and Kandace’s recordings into what you hear. “It sounds organic because everything was built around the songwriting. She says so much on the piano, and her voice is amazing—it’s the focal point of the whole sound.”

The track listing for Indigo is as follows:

1. Don’t Need The Real Thing
2. Breakdown
3. Fix Me
4. Indigo (Pt. 1)
5. Piece Of Me
6. 6 8
7. Indigo (Pt. 2)
8. People Make The World Go ‘Round
9. Unsophisticated feat. Roy Hargrove
10. Black Orchid
11. Love Sucks
12. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
13. Simple Things feat. Scat Springs
