According to the press release, “Andre Williams releases his fourth full-length album – Hoods and Shades – on Bloodshot Records on February 28. The new album was recorded in Detroit, once again bringing Andre together with long-time contributors Matt Smith (Outrageous Cherry, Nathaniel Mayer, Volebeats), Funk Brother Dennis Coffey on guitar, Jim White (Dirty Three, Cat Power), Greasy Carlisi (Robert Gordon, Chris Spedding), Jim Diamond (Dirtbombs), and Grammy-award winning producer Don Was. For Hoods and Shades Andre ventures into a folk/psychedelic/R&B zone, in what he has dubbed “the Andre Williams folk album”.”

It’s a great album, and this promises to be a great show.
