The Blind Boys of Alabama, a gospel blues group that's been around for over five decades is set to release their new album, I'll Find A Way, via Sony Masterworks this fall. The official release date is October 1st.
In addition to Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond, Sam Amidon, and Casey Dienel of White Hinterland, the group has now announced more special guests to be featured on the album.
Justin Vernon of Bon Iver produced I'll Find A Way and we will get to hear him join the Blind Boys of Alabama on "Every Grain of Sand", a Bob Dylan cover. Singer / song-writer Patty Griffin will join the guys on "Jubilee" and Merrill Garbus of the Tune-Yards on "I've Been Searching."
The boys are currently touring the U.S. in anticipation of their new album. Click here for The Blind Boys of Alabama tour dates
