Some people say luck is the intersection of hard work and opportunity. The Revivalists have been on an unbelievable ride where twelve years of tireless hard work was unexpectedly revved up by the wrongly dubbed “overnight success” of the double platinum-selling #1 single “Wish I Knew You.” Like any enduring band worth its salt, they set their sights on what’s next, buckling down and turning up with an album full of tunes marked by moments of sonic complexity, celebration, and catharsis, taking their songcraft to a whole new level. “All My Friends,” co-written by front man David Shaw and GRAMMY-nominated producer/songwriter Dave Bassett [Elle King, Vance Joy], signals this newfound depth and ambition.
For the first time, The Revivalists recorded and co-wrote with multiple producers and writers, enlisting the talents of Dave Cobb [SturgillSimpson, Chris Stapleton], Andrew Dawson [Kanye West, Fun., Sleigh Bells], and Bassett for sessions in New Orleans as well as Nashville, where they recorded at the iconic RCA Studio B, soaking up the aura of one of the most storied studios in music. The band then dug deeper into the songs that comprised Take Good Care while surrounded by the historic sonic magic of Fame Studios for reimagined takes on songs in their catalog new and classic for the more recent Made in Muscle Shoals album release that also included a compendium mini-documentary.
