It’s been three years since Alabama Shakes released their powerful debut album Boys & Girls, but thankfully the band is finally back and ready to put out another album. Their forthcoming full-length LP titled Sound & Color is due out on April 21 via ATO (April 20 in Europe on Rough Trade).

Sound & Color was recorded in Nashville in the Sound Emporium with the help of producer Blake Mills. The band’s first single “Don’t Wanna Fight” gives us a preview of just how good we can expect their upcoming album to be.

Listen to “Don’t Wanna Fight” below.
