RNR News and Notes

 

 

It's been a while since we've heard from The Alabama Shakes ... and lately we've been hearing rumors that front woman / lead guitar player Brittany Howard was going to be releasing a solo album ... and it could lead to the end of the band ... Well - good news / bad news. 

 

Brittany Howard is indeed releasing a solo album - Jamie- on Sept. 20 via ATO Records.  She also shared the opening track - History Repeats (hear it below)

 

“‘History Repeats’ is as much a personal song as it is a song about us as a human species. Our times of success may propel us forward, but our repeating failures hold us back from evolving into harmony,”

 

More good news - she will be playing TWO nights at the 930 Club in DC as part of a short run of shows
