*If you’re into Robert Randolph & the Family Band, have we got good news for you.
Randolph’s new Warner Bros project, “We Walk This Road,” produced by T Bone Burnett, comes out June 22.
Robert and T Bone worked closely together as archivists, discovering songs decade by decade from the 20th century American music canon. The songs they uncovered, ranging from blues and rock to field recordings and gospel, serve as the inspiration for the 11 songs on “We Walk This Road.”
If you’re not familiar with Robert, he was voted one of Rolling Stone’s greatest guitarists of all time. He plays the Sacred Steel – an instrument out of the church that Robert is looking to bring mainstream.
Take a look at the video below to hear and see Robert as he explains the concept and plays his funky steel guitar:
