Once again, LETTUCE blesses us with some of the hottest new funk to hit the scene. They’ve just announced their seventh studio album Resonate. A graciously welcomed follow-up to their 2019 Grammy-nominated album Elevate, to drop on May 8th via Round Hill Records. Their leading single “Checker Wrecker” is a tantalizing tease of what’s to come for their next album and the future of live performance for LETTUCE.
What’s a “Checker Wrecker” you ask? Don’t worry cuz Big Tony’s gon tell ya! For their newest track, LETTUCE invites Big Tony Fisher (Trouble Funk) and Tyrone “Jungle Boogie” Williams (Rare Essence) to join in on the funky stuff.
This song is full of feel-good vibes with some psychedelic undertones and a whole lotta funk. This song is reminiscent of a track you might hear in a jazz club deep in the heart of New Orleans. Nigel Hall brings us home with the horn section made up of Ryan Zoidis and Eric “Benny” Bloom. Those bongos give us a change-up flavor that knocks it out of the park by Tyrone “Jungle Boogie” Williams.
Seriously, we can’t wait to hear this live.
If this is any indicator of the rest of their newest studio album Resonate, fans are in a for a multi-generational, “listen anywhere” treat.
They’ve just announced a huge 21-stop Europe tour – their biggest international headlining tour to date. And they have a ton of dates in North America – including Jazz Fest (and their fan-favorite Jazz Fest kick-off show RAGE FEST!), SweetWater 420 Fest. Not to mention their two-night run at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO on April 10-11. Check out their full tour HERE.
