By Blurt Staff
Andre Williams will release
his new album, Hoods and Shades, on February 28 on Bloodshot Records.
This will be the Detroit/Chicago-based Williams’ fourth full-length album
released on the label, and first since 2010’s That’s All I Need. Watch
for the full BLURT review soon.
Okay, let’s launch the first
single from the album:
“Dirt” is a good
representation of the new record, which has been self-dubbed the “Andre
Williams folk album,” and had been received extremely well in recent live
performances. The song features contributions for an all-star cast including
Funk Brother Dennis Coffey on guitar, Grammy-winning producer Don Was on bass,
Jim White of Dirty Three on drums, and members of the Dirtbombs, and others.
