Jump to “More items of this artist”

Tedeschi Trucks Band - das von dem Ehepaar Derek Trucks und Susan Tedeschi gegründete 12-köpfige Kollektiv - veröffentlichen in diesem Jahr das ehrgeizigste Studioprojekt ihrer langjährigen Karriere : I Am The Moon, ein episches Unterfangen in vier Alben mit 24 Originalsongs. Inspiriert von einer mythischen persischen Geschichte über ein unglücklich verliebtes Paar und emotional getrieben von der Isolation und Abgeschiedenheit der Pandemie-Ära, umfasst das thematische I Am The Moon mehr als zwei Stunden Musik insgesamt, die sich in einem robusten Wandteppich aus genreübergreifenden Musik -Erkundungen entfaltet
Jedes der einzelnen Alben wird durch einen eigenen Film begleitet.

Die vier Alben, aus denen I Am The Moon besteht - I. Crescent, II. Ascension, III. The Fall, und IV. Farewell - werden in aufeinanderfolgenden Monaten veröffentlicht, beginnend mit I. Crescent, das ab Freitag, dem 3. Juni, digital und auf CD erhältlich ist (alle Vinyl-Konfigurationen, einschließlich einzelner LPs und der 4-LP I Am The Moon Deluxe Box, werden am 9. September erhältlich sein).

Tedeschi Trucks Band invite you to experience I AM THE MOON, an expansive, inspired, and ambitious musical journey that propels the treasured American ensemble into new and thrilling creative territory.
During the pandemic and its corresponding isolation, Tedeschi Trucks Band, one of the music’s most admired and successful live music draws, was searching for something to hold on to; a way to connect to each other and their craft. They had come off a triumphant performance of Derek and the Dominoes’ classic Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs with Trey Anastasio at the LOCKN’ Festival, which subsequently led to the release of the band’s acclaimed live album, last summer’s Layla: Revisited. Looking for an idea, TTB vocalist Mike Mattison turned to Layla’s rich source material for inspiration: Layla and Majnun, the legendary ninety-page narrative poem of star-crossed lovers by 12th Century Sufi poet Nizami. As a writing exercise, Mattison challenged the group to delve into the poem’s deeper themes. As he pointed out, Clapton’s “Layla” only used one element of the poem - Majnun’s love-madness - whereas the poem itself contains multitudes: family drama, classism, isolation, judgment, and the severe cost of single-minded mania, even in the cause of love. (Indeed, Layla and Majnun is believed to be the inspiration behind Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and many other eastern and western literary classics.)
Challenge accepted. With a burst of creativity and focus over the course of the next year, the band wrote and recorded the best material of their career: an electric and vibrant conceptualization that spans the richness of American music as only they can. The prolific sessions were so successful, they ended up with a little over two hours of essential music. Despite its sprawling nature, the tracks on I AM THE MOON are concise and visceral, epitomizing and enhancing the collaborative nature of the storytelling.
