Fans can stream the album-length companion visual from filmmaker Alix Lambert on the band’s YouTube Channel, ahead of its digital and CD release this Friday, August 26th, 2022

Tedeschi Trucks Band performed their uplifting and poignant new single, “Soul Sweet Song,” on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, watch it HERE. TTB also performed three additional songs from I Am The Moon for a special KIMMEL ‘off-air’ live stream, watch it HERE.

In his bio notes, esteemed music journalist David Fricke summarized Farewell:  

“Farewell – the final record in the groundbreaking studio release by Tedeschi Trucks Band, I Am The Moon – concludes a remarkable adventure and new beginning for the group, now in its 12th year as America’s premier rock & roll big band: four distinct and, at the same time, deeply connected albums with a total of 24 original songs capturing the power of devotion in a time of crisis and separation, with a renewed energy in collective songwriting and performance. Opening with the lusty confrontation of “Last Night In The Rain” and ending with the rousing benediction “Another Day,” Farewell is “a wish of well-being at parting,” as one dictionary defines that word – with more road and love ahead.”

The groundswell of excitement surrounding each new I Am The Moon release reaches a crescendo this week in anticipation of the journey’s final chapter. As the band has rolled out the rich, new I Am The Moon material this summer, ecstatic fans, eager for the communal experience–both live in-concert and online– have embraced this project like no other in the band’s history. 

This past week, TTB began the west coast run of their Wheels of Soul tour with triumphant shows at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Berkeley. As a recent review at Live Music Daily noted: “Why do we love live music? For me, it is the journey that a band can take you on and the feeling that the audience is on that ride with the band, hand-in-hand. Riding the waves, hitting the peaks, enjoying the journey.  To me, there is no better band to take the universal trip with than Tedeschi Trucks Band.” See full dates below. 

TTB’s Mike Mattison recently sat down with PRX The World to discuss Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi’s “Layla & Majnun,” the influential epic romance poem that was the thematic throughline of I Am The Moon. Listen to the interview here

Last month, Derek Trucks spoke with Rick Beato for a far-reaching interview that delves into Derek’s one-of-kind guitar/audio technique, his deep-rooted jazz influences, and much more. Watch here.
