saxophonist Donny McCaslin (Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’) preps solo LP, touring


Saxophonist Donny McCaslin, who you may know from his contributions to David Bowie’s Blackstar, is prepping a solo album that’s due out later this year. While details on the album are still scarce, Donny has shared rocking, danceable new single “What About the Body.” For it, McCaslin recruited Blackstar bassist Tim Lefebvre and and songwriter and lyricist Ryan Dahle (Limblifter, Mounties). You can stream it below.
