After the passing of friend and former frontman Theryl “The Houseman” DeClouet last month, Galactic have shared a new song featuring the late singer in remembrance and to help raise money for DeClouet’s family as they face medical and funeral expenses.
The new track, “Can’t You Believe,” features backing vocals from Ivan Neville and Erica Falls, plus a couple of guest horn players, Shamarr Allen on trumpet and Corey Henry on trombone. According to a statement from Galactic, the band had been working on the song with DeClouet over the past year.
Proceeds from sales of the single will go to the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic to aid DeClouet’s family. Fans can also donate to the organization here. As the band writes, checks written to the Musicians’ Clinic should have “Houseman” written in the memo line and can be sent to the following address:
1525 Louisiana Ave
New Orleans, LA 70115
