Robert Randolph’s We Walk This Road Set For Release June 22

Grammy-nominated Robert Randolph & The Family Band’s highly anticipated new album We Walk This Road—the first since the band’s acclaimed 2006 effort, Colorblind—is set for release June 22 on Warner Bros. Records. Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, the album continues the Sacred Steel tradition for which Randolph has earned wide praise, including the New York Times, which applauds “his rip-roaring virtuosity and his gift for making his instrument sing without a word.” Randolph is also renowned for his passionate live performance—called “a spiritual celebration complete with audience participation and animated dancing” by the Chicago Tribune. Accompanied by his Sacred Steel mentors, Randolph is currently performing as part of the “Experience Hendrix Tour.” The tour also features Los Lobos, Ernie Isley, Joe Satriani, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and others.
Throughout the recording of We Walk This Road, Randolph and Burnett 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. Recorded at the Village Recorders and Electro Magnetic Studio, 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).
