Anders Osborne Releases Surprise New Album ‘Flower Box’
In March, Anders Osborne self-released the studio album Spacedust & Ocean Views. Now, just months later the guitarist/vocalist has issued his second album of 2016, entitled Flower Box.
Recorded in his hometown of New Orleans with producer Mark Howard in late-2015, the new LP is “a heavier, guitar-driven follow-up” to Spacedust & Ocean Views. Osborne shared this regarding Flower Box:
I love the way this record comes out stout and determined right out the gate, a four-piece rock & roll band making beautiful and conquering noise. The producer, Mark Howard, has a way of making you play in the moment and being confident. His sounds and engineering style is that of classic records, with his own special sauce of “haunting” on top of it. The musicians on here are undoubtedly some of my absolute favorites in the world, both as players and as people. Their contributions are invaluable. Scott Metzger, Brady Blade, Carl Dufrene, Chad Cromwell, Marc Broussard, David LaBruyere, Rob McNelley and Justin Tocket. Bad boys! I’ve been wanting to make this record for several years and I am stoked it’s finally here.
Osborne has an extensive headlining tour planned in the coming weeks and months. He’ll also be appearing this weekend at FloydFest and has sets scheduled at the Peach Music Festival, Telluride Blues & Brews, Blues Views & BBQ Festival Westport and elsewhere.
