Funk supergroup The New Mastersounds should need no introduction; in 2019 they celebrate 20 years as a band, with so many releases their own promotion agency has given up trying to keep count and an amount of live shows that only dedicated musicians who truly love their craft could withstand. 20 years together, yet NMS continue (somehow) to play with the enthusiasm and joy of teenagers.
Their newest single “Let’s Go Back” sets the stage for a collaboration between The New Mastersounds and vocalist Lamar Williams Jr. Written by NMS keyboardist Joe Tatton during a late night creative session in Atlanta, the song draws influences from the swampy grooves of Lee Dorsey and The Meters, with lyrics testifying that it’s never too late to go back and ‘make things good again’. This feel-good track is the first digital single off the album “Shake It”, due for release on Color Red Records on September 13, 2019.
