The seventh studio album from Michael Franti & Spearhead is now set for an August 24 release. The Sound of Sunshine has been preceded by two singles, with the title track at #2 on the AAA charts and “Shake It” receiving Top 40 and Hot AC radio airplay. The disc first took shape in Jamaica sessions with producers Sly and Robbie and ultimately was completed via a mobile studio while Franti toured with John Mayer earlier this year.

Michael Franti & Spearhead who recently completed a stretch of dates, will next perform at the Taos Solar Music Festival this coming weekend.
