Lettuce Releases New Album ‘Resonate’

After their 2019 album Elevate garnered a Grammy nod, Lettuce is back in 2020 with Resonate. The funk outfit’s seventh studio album is out now via Round Hill Records.

Resonate actually comes from the same sessions that produced the Grammy-nominated Elevate at Colorado Sound Studio with renowned producer and engineer Russ Elevado (D’Angelo, The Roots, Erykah Badu). The resulting 11-song set has been described as “master class in funk sub-genres.”

That much is evident on singles like the Washington D.C. go-go music — the bridge between funk and hip hop — inspired “Checker Wrecker,” which features go-go legends Big Tony Fisher of Trouble Funk and Tyrone “Jungle Boogie” Williams of Rare Essence. The band also nods to legendary drummer Leon ‘Ndugu’ Chancler on “NDUGU” and showcases their dance side with the four on the floor beat of “House Of Lett.”
