Preservation Hall Jazz Band will release a new album, That’s It!, July 9 on Legacy Recordings. It marks the band’s first album of new compositions in its entire 50-year history.
That’s It! was produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and PHJB’s Ben Jaffe and recorded at the Preservation Hall in New Orleans. Band members Jaffe, Charlie Gabriel, Rickie Monie and Clint Maedgen wrote for the album and collaborated with Paul Williams, Dan Wilson and Chris Stapleton on several songs. An LP version of That’s It! will be pressed on 180 gram vinyl and includes a full size poster.
The PHJB also plans to tape a music video for their first original title track, “That’s It!” In a partnership with Genero.tv, fan filmmakers will have the opportunity to create a music video for the song. Submissions close June 12th, and all the details are available at GeneroTV.
