Funk/Soul-Jazz Group The New Mastersounds to Release New Album “Old School” on March 29th, 2024 | LISTEN! Announces New Tour for 2024

The New Mastersounds’ New Record ‘Old School’ Will Be Available via the Color Red Vinyl Club in the US
New Single “Smoothie” Out Today

First US Tour in 5 Years Begins on March 27th

Today, longstanding international funk and soul-jazz heroes The New Mastersounds have released “Smoothie,” the second single off of their forthcoming album ‘Old School’ available via One Note Records on March 29th.

Blended with love and care and packed with nutrients, “Smoothie” is an uptempo, tambourine-driven soul-jazz groover sitting somewhere between Boogaloo Joe Jones and early James Taylor Quartet but with a much crunchier drum sound courtesy of the band’s rhythmkeeper Simon Allen and with a blistering organ melody from keyboardist Joe Tatton. In music, just like smoothies, you get out what you put in, and The New Mastersounds have been putting the work and talent into their craft for decades. The release of ‘Old School’ finds the group showcasing 10 original instrumental compositions composed and performed at the Joe Tatton’s studio in the heart of the English Peak District during a rainy week in July 2023.

‘Old School’ is being pressed and distributed in the UK with limited distribution access in the US. However, fans in the US can guarantee their copy by signing up for the Color Red Vinyl Club.

The Color Red Vinyl Club sends high-quality 180g vinyl records straight to your doorstep every month featuring records produced and curated by Eddie Roberts and the Color Red team. Vinyl club members are treated to an exclusive experience often receiving special colored vinyl available only to vinyl club members, signed covers or inserts, and more to make the experience extra special. Color Red Vinyl Club members have access to the label’s vinyl releases before anybody else and Color Red ships records as soon as they hit their doorstep, even if it’s before the official street date.

New subscribers who sign up during March will receive a copy of ‘Old School’ signed by all four members of The New Mastersounds PLUS a FREE COPY of The New Mastersounds’ first 2001 record ‘Keb Darge Presents: The New Mastersounds.’

The band is about to embark on their first US tour in 5 years kicking off in Crested Butte, Colorado on March 27th. Most of the tour dates will be supported by Roberts’ new Southern funk/blues projects The Lucky Strokes featuring Roberts, vocalist/guitarist Shelby Kemp, and St. Petersburg, FL-based rhythm section Ashley and Taylor Galbraith on bass and drums respectively.
