Though Derek Trucks Band is currently on hiatus, the band will release the new live album Roadsongs. As the group explains:
Over two April nights in Chicago, The Derek Trucks Band took the stage at Park West to perform in front of raucous sold-out crowds. Fans were eager to hear the new material off the band’s just-released Already Free, and the band was happy to be on the road once again, doing what they love and playing music for the mind, body and spirit. Mixing fresh material from Already Free, such as a rollicking run through “Get What You Deserve,” a soul-drenched version of “I Know,” and a powerful take on Bob Dylan’s “Down In The Flood,” with classic dTb originals like “I’ll Find My Way,” Roadsongs captures dTb as they reached new heights on-stage. An awe-inspiring 14-minute workout on John Coltrane’s “Afro Blue,” and the first officially-released version of dTb live staple “Get Out My Life Woman” (with a Jimi Hendrix “Who Knows” interlude in the middle) elevate Roadsongs into the stratosphere.
The album is now available for pre-order. Meanwhile, Trucks continues to perform with his wife Susan Tedeschi and a revolving band.
