Grammy-nominated Robert Randolph & The Family Band’s highly anticipated new album We Walk This Road is set for release June 21 on Warner Bros. Records. Produced by T Bone, the album continues the Sacred Steel tradition for which Randolph has earned wide praise.
Throughout the recording of the album, Robert and T Bone worked closely together as archivists, discovering songs—decade by decade—from the 20th century American music canon. The songs they uncovered, ranging from blues and rock to field recordings and gospel, serve as the inspiration for the 11 songs on We Walk This Road.
The album includes “If I Had My Way” (featuring Ben Harper), “Salvation” (featuring Leon Russell), and reinterpretations of Prince’s “Walk Don’t Walk,” Bob Dylan’s “Shot Of Love,” (featuring Jim Keltner, who played drums on the original version) and John Lennon’s “I Don’t Wanna Be A Soldier Mama” (featuring Doyle Bramhall II).
