Cody ChesnuTT to Release First Album in 10 Years


With the release of 60s soul revivalist Cody ChesnuTT's album, Landing On A Hundred, fast approaching (October 30), Cody ChesnuTT shares "Til I Met Thee" with NPR's Fall Preview. Sneak a listen to the new track here. This album will be the first full length that Cody ChesnuTT releases since his genre-bending album, The Headphone Masterpiece 10 years ago.

Catch Cody ChesnuTT's electrifying live show this month as he performs on Saturday, September 29 at Blacktop Festival in Denver, Colorado. Cody will also be joining revered Meshell Ndegeocello at Highline Ballroom in New York City, October 16. On November 9, Cody will additionally bring his high engergy performance to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon's stage as he sits in with the Roots.

Universally hailed as a thrilling new figure in music for his edgy, lo-fi debut, The Headphone Masterpiece, back in 2002, Cody ChesnuTT is a soul troubadour whose frank, socially conscious ruminations on life continue to challenge popular notions of what modern soul music can look and sound like.

Landing On A Hundred, Cody’s second full-length LP, marks his return to the music game after a period of family-man retreat and reflection that did a world of good for him after his meteoric rise to near fame. The title is a reference to the slang saying, “Keeping It One Hundred,” or telling the whole truth, and for lovers of true blue Southern soul this new album is a must-have — he recorded it with a ten-piece band in Memphis-based Royal Studios, the sonic birthplace of some of the deepest works by soul and blues luminaries like Al Green, Buddy Guy and Ike & Tina Turner.

Be sure to also check out Cody's intimate behind the scenes video of his recording “Everybody's Brother” below, and listen to his track “That's Still Mama” here.
