Tedeschi Trucks Band Shares ‘Soul Sweet Song’ Single
The song comes in honor of late TTB keyboardist Kofi Burbridge.
Tedeschi Trucks Band released the new single “Soul Sweet Song.” Written in tribute to late TTB keyboardist Kofi Burbridge, “Soul Sweet Song” appears on the group’s forthcoming album, I Am The Moon: Episode IV. Farewell.
Farewell is the fourth and final chapter in the TTB’s ambitious I Am The Moon album series. The six-song collection is due out via Fantasy on Friday, August 26. An accompanying full-length companion film premieres through Tedeschi Trucks Band’s YouTube channel on Tuesday, August 23. All four I Am The Moon albums, including a deluxe box set, arrive on vinyl September 9 and are currently available for pre-order.
Current TTB keyboardist Gabe Dixon and TTB vocalist Mike Mattison collaborated to write “Soul Sweet Song” in honor of Burbridge. Kofi passed away in February 2019. “Gabe’s lyrics: I feel your rhythm moving me/’Cause your soul’s sweet song’s still singing – that hit me between the eyes,” explained Derek Trucks. Derek’s wife and fellow bandleader, Susan Tedeschi provides lead vocals on the new tune.
