On February 8, Galactic will issue their long-awaited 10th studio album Already Ready Already through Tchoup-Zilla Records/Thirty Tigers. The New Orleans-based band shared the LP’s lead single “Clap Your Hands” featuring Miss Charm Taylor.

Galactic’s first new studio album since 2015’s Into The Deep also features guest appearances from Princess Shaw, David Shaw, Nahko, Erica Falls and Boyfriend. Bassist Robert Mercurio and saxophonist Ben Ellman handled production duties on the eight-track effort, which “sees Galactic taking a distinctly contemporary approach towards their own progressive sound, interpolating modern rhythms and electronic instrumentation within the house-shaking framework of Crescent City funk pop ‘n’ roll” as per press materials.

“I’ve never been able to put a label on what we do,” Ellman said. “I can throw out a lot of words – I could say it’s funk or I could say it’s R&B or jazz or whatever else, but really, it’s all of that.”

“It’s not that we’re always trying to push boundaries,” added Mercurio, “but we definitely take influence from our hometown and try to do something new with it. We tour all around the world and we’re exposed to tons of elements that filter their way into our consciousness and come out through our music.” Galactic fans won’t have to wait too long for yet another album either. The band recorded another LP worth of material during the Already Ready Already sessions that is due later in 2019. Ben Ellman describes the second 2019 Galactic record as “more of a throwback Meters thing.”

Listen to “Clap Your Hands,” which premiered on SiriusXM and via Relix:
