Recorded in Lockdown last year with producer Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Jack Savoretti, Tom Walker, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes) the highly anticipated new Alabama 3 album Step 13 is out this Friday via Submarine Cat Records and available to pre-order here:

Featuring the South London’s beloved roots-futurists first recordings since the tragic passing of founding member Jake Black, aka The Very Reverend D. Wayne Love, in May of 2019, ‘Step 13’ is a cathartic, yet also joyous return for a band who have always existed within their own vacuum; in and out of fashion, playing only by their own rules and making Sweet Pretty Muthafuckin County Acid House Music. All night long.

This week Alabama 3 have revealed another glimpse of ‘Step 13’ in ‘Petronella Says’ – a pumping, upbeat, harmonica-howling dance-floor kicker that deals with ‘the collision between the delusions of the rich and the realities of the poor.’

You can listen to ‘Petronella Says’ HERE:

For many, Alabama 3 were first launched into the nation’s consciousness and are still adored the world over for 1997’s inaugural smash ‘Woke Up This Morning’. Its marriage of Howlin’ Wolf samples and trip hop beats provided the theme music for long-running HBO series ‘The Sopranos’, which in an amazing case of serendipity, returns this week in prequel movie ‘The Many Saints Of Newark.’

Returning again with ‘Woke Up This Morning’ as its theme, ‘The Many Saints Of Newark’ explores the early troubled teenage years of lead character Tony Soprano and opens in cinemas today.

“Once again the sins of the father are bestowed upon the son, we are delighted to be a part of this process,” states vocalist Larry Love. “Let Woke Up This Morning befall the next generation of the sopranos family, and remember this kids, crime does pay…sometimes.”
