As discussed, The Blind Boys of Alabama have been working on a new album with Justin Vernon titled I’ll Find a Way, which will be out via Sony Masterworks on October 1. It features guest appearances from Sam Amidon, Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond, Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, Casey Dienel of White Hinterland, and Patty Griffin. You can watch a short-form documentary about the making of the album below.

The Blind Boys of Alabama will also be touring this fall. That includes a stop in NYC opening for The Black Crowes at the second their four Terminal 5 shows (October 26). Tickets for that show are on sale now.
