Menahan Street Band Announces New Album ‘Exciting Sounds Of’ & Shares Single


Menahan Street Band announced their first album in nine years, The Exciting Sounds Of The Menahan Street Band, due out on February 26th, 2021 via Daptone Records. The Brooklyn-based funk and soul instrumental group also shared the single “Midnight Morning.”

Menahan Street Band is perhaps best known as the backing group for the late great soul artists Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley. Renowned guitarist and bandleader Thomas Brenneck produced the new Menahan Street Band record — the follow up to 2012’s The Crossing — at the collective’s Diamond Mine Studios in Long Island City, New York.

Daptone Records released a statement detailing the album. Read an excerpt below:

The Exciting Sounds of Menahan Street Band is a milestone that reveals new dimensions in tone and timbre, as well as mood and design. World-renowned artist, Ariana Papademetropoulis lends her imaginative style to help create the striking cover art; a visceral visual that pairs well with the arsenal of analog instrumentation employed in the making of the album…actualized with a mingling of hip hop, rock and roll, funk, and all of the eccentricities in between. Stand out tracks include the lead single “Midnight Morning,” followed by “The Duke,” “Rising Dawn,” and “Devil’s Respite.”
