The Doors guitarist Robby Krieger has announced he will release an album with his new band The Soul Savages on January 19, 2024.
Along with the album announcement, the band released the record’s lead single, “A Day in L.A.”
The 10-track album, titled Robby Krieger And The Soul Savages, was recorded in old school style in a relaxed studio setting.
The album, tracked at Love Street Studios in Glendale, California, features music inspired by classic soul, 1960s jazz, blues, rock, psychedelic rock, and so on.
“I’ve had this studio for the last six or seven years, and it’s really made me branch out as a musician,” Krieger says. “We wrote together, and soul music became a big part of this album. These guys are world-class players-they’ve worked with Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, Lenny Kravitz-they have that great groove pedigree.”
The Soul Savages feature keyboardist Ed Roth, Grammy-winning bassist Kevin “Brandino” Brandon, and drummer Franklin Vanderbilt.
“This band inspired a style of playing I hadn’t done in a while, and it also inspired me to do new things,” Krieger noted. “For example, in the past, I reserved my slide playing for more of the bluesy stuff, but I stretched out on the album playing slide over jazz, funk, and soul grooves. I want to keep evolving, and these guys really inspire me.”
