    Hello, I’m Britti.

    Released February 2, 2024

    Singer-songwriter Britti — born Brittany Guerin in Baton Rouge; reborn in and proudly repping New Orleans now — isn’t defined by genre as much as her effervescent spirit, which she will share with the world on her debut record Hello, I’m Britti. on February 2, 2024. The album is a love letter to the place she calls home, a triumphant ode to fresh starts in the face of heartbreak, and the culmination of a years-long journey even Britti didn’t always know she was taking. It shows the many sides of a singular voice: pairing shimmering country-pop with bright trills (much like childhood favorite Dolly Parton); breathy purrs atop the hazy reverie of 90’s R&B; and full-on bellows alongside sumptuous horns paying homage to her New Orleans home. Dan Auerbach enlisted a remarkable group of first-call players to uplift Britti’s formidable instrument, including percussionist Nick Movshon (Amy Winehouse, Wu Tang Clan, The Arcs), Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Sharon Van Etten), guitarist Tom Bukovac (Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks), and keyboard wizard Mike Rojas (Yola, Miranda Lambert), among others.

    Black Bayou

    Released October 27, 2023

    Black Bayou, Finley’s third studio album, is a portrait of Louisiana from an insider who’s lived there all his life and coalesces all of the vibrant genres bubbling in the bayou from gospel, blues, rock and roll and more. With this Dan Auerbach-produced album, they created a vivid collection of songs that depict life in North Louisiana, with Finley playing the role of charismatic and knowledgeable tour guide.

    “It’s amazing to realize how much of an impact Louisiana has had on the world’s music,” says Dan Auerbach, “and Robert embodies all of that. He can play a blues song. He can play early rock and roll. He can play gospel. He can do anything, and a lot of that has to do with where he’s from.”

    Released October 10, 2023

    Hermanos Gutiérrez first-ever remix and vocal pairing, a new interpretation of “Los Chicos Tristes” from their album El Bueno Y El Malo. Remixed by Leon Michels, better known as El Michels Affair (also a member of The Arcs), and introducing vocals from Jensine Benitez, the new take on the beloved ambient instrumental adds more prominent drum beats and a spoken word introduction by Benitez, giving the song an intense, cinematic twist. Subtle organ notes, vocalizing, and Hermanos’ intertwining guitars lead the remix into a darker, more mysterious place while staying true to the duo’s intimate sound that has won them millions of fans across the globe.

    Keep It Hid 2023 Reissue

    Released September 29, 2023

    Dan Auerbach’s debut solo album Keep It Hid will return to physical formats next month, with the seminal 2009 collection being reissued on vinyl, CD, and limited edition cassette. The fourteen-song debut marked Auerbach’s first major work outside of The Black Keys. The collection spans from echo-laden garage rock ("Heartbroken, In Disrepair") and fuzz-scarred blues ("The Prowl") to haunted Southern soul ("Real Desire") and bittersweet-country comfort ("When The Night Comes"). The album was hailed as “intimate and thrilling” by NPR’s Fresh Air upon its original release, with reviewer Ken Tucker adding it “sounds like a clearing of the throat and mind.” The 2023 reissue of the long-out-of-print Keep It Hid will arrive on September 29, equipped with new album art and six updated vinyl variants, as well as a limited-edition cassette release for the first time.

    Jon Muq is a singer-songwriter born in Uganda and living in Austin, Texas. His poignant debut single, “Runaway,” blends sounds across the diaspora, drawing eclectically from folk, soul, rock and afropop. Muq’s haunting vocals are front and center, a sound truly their own and instantly provoke reflection and resilience.

    The single is accompanied by a music video, featuring Jon Muq alone, playing his guitar in his room - a fitting introduction to his remarkable story, a tale that is interwoven with the instrument which for Muq became a portal to another world. On “Runaway,” Jon Muq said: “Running away from anything good or bad is never a weakness but rather courageous.”

    Yellow Peril

    Released June 23, 2023

    On his debut album ‘Yellow Peril,’ Nat Myers carries on the traditions of the blues while simultaneously shattering every stereotype that comes with them. A Korean-American poet raised on hardcore and hip-hop, Myers found his calling early in the hundred-year-old sounds of artists like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Charley Patton. Drawing from his heroes, he uses the blues to shine a light on the injustice he sees around him, and specifically the dark wave of Asian hate that accompanied the global pandemic. Produced by Dan Auerbach, who oversaw sessions for the first time in his own Nashville home (which acts as another instrument on the record), 'Yellow Peril' is available everywhere June 23, 2023.

    Electrophonic Chronic

    Released January 27, 2023

    'Electrophonic Chronic' features The Arcs full original line-up of Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Nick Movshon, Homer Steinweiss and Richard Swift. The collection was recorded between Nashville - at Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound studio - and New York at Electric Lady and Leon Michels' Diamond Mine. The album's cover art was illustrated by El Oms, whose artwork also dons the cover of the group's 2015 debut Yours, Dreamily. Like much of Electrophonic Chronic it stands as a tribute to Swift, their bandmate and brother gone too soon. "This new record is all about honoring Swift," Auerbach concludes. "It’s a way for us to say goodbye to him, by revisiting him playing and laughing, singing. It was heavy at times, but I think it was really helpful to do it.”

    The new album, 'Electrophonic Chronic,' is available everywhere January 27, 2023.

    El Bueno Y El Malo

    Released October 28, 2022

    Brothers born in Ecuador and raised in Switzerland, have come together to create a signature guitar sound inspired by expansive plains and rough wildernesses, saguaros and surfs, spaghetti westerns and Morricone soundtracks. 'El Bueno Y El Malo' is their most epic journey yet: Working with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach at his Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville, they’ve crafted ten vivid compositions that highlight their intimate guitar playing, where one brother’s rhythms and the other brother’s melodies twine around each other so that they become inextricable.

    Strange Time To Be Alive

    Released August 19, 2022

    Alabama's native son, Early James, will release his sophomore album, Strange Time To Be Alive, on August 19, 2022. The lyrical wordsmith conjures the ghosts of great southern gothic writers from Eudora Welty to William Faulkner, while channeling the haunted spirits of Tom Waits and Townes Van Zandt. The album evokes a timeless amalgam of forsaken blues, wistful folk and Tin Pan Alley crooning, anchored by the singer’s unmistakable voice that sways from gravel-filled shouts to pained, forlorn whispers – and songs that tread in the waters of darkly themed broken hearts.

    On the road again since August 2021, Early James will continue touring consistently through 2022. Confirmed upcoming tour dates are with The Black Keys and The Ghost of Paul Revere. Previously, Early James has played Newport Folk and toured with The Lone Bellow, The Marcus King Band, Zachary Williams, and Shovels & Rope.
