Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe has announced its new studio album ‘Gnomes & Badgers’ will be released March 8 on Seven Spheres Records. The 11-track effort is KDTU’s first new recording in five years. Denson and his hard touring, road-honed band— featuring guitarist DJ Williams, lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman, trumpeter Chris Littlefield, organist David Veith, bassist Chris Stillwell and drummer Zak Najor—were joined in the studio by a few legendary friends, including The Rolling Stones’ keyboardist and Allman Brothers Band alum Chuck Leavell, guitar-slinging singer-songwriter Lukas Nelson, New Orleans guitar hero Anders Osborne, Austin producer and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Quesada and NOLA R&B royal Ivan Neville. The album’s first single, “I’m Your Biggest Fan,” is out now on streaming services.

Throughout ‘Gnomes & Badgers,’ singer and saxophonist Karl Denson fronts the Tiny Universe as if he’s preaching the gospel. Merging funk, soul, rock, jazz, blues and more, his energy and spirit are contagious, while his songwriting speaks to a larger message of fellowship—across generations, genders, religions and cultures. Not surprisingly then, Denson is none too pleased with the current state of political discourse. The result of this discontent is ‘Gnomes & Badgers’—his hard-grooving answer to these tragically divisive times.

Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe will support ‘Gnomes & Badgers’ with shows through May. Denson then picks up his reoccurring role as touring saxophonist with The The Rolling Stones on their U.S. summer tour. Highlights among KDTU’s upcoming appearances include an official set at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 26, as well as a tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, at The Orpheum Theater on May 3. KDTU also makes summer festival appearances at High Sierra Music Festival and Floydfest. Additional shows will be announced shortly.
