iTunes Editors’ Notes
The Blind Boys of Alabama aren't shy at trying new things within their own gospel-roots framework, and collaborating with others has been part of their approach for decades. The last dozen years in the Blind Boys' 70-plus-year career have seen them collaborate like never before, experimenting with blues, country, hip-hop, and Tom Waits. I’ll Find a Way is produced by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, and he pairs the group with tUnEyArDs’ Merrill Garbus (“I’ve Been Searching”), Sam Amidon (“I Am Not Waiting Anymore”), My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden (“I’ll Find a Way (To Carry It All)”), and Patty Griffin (“Jubilee”), among the guests. Vernon himself joins the group for a spiritual read of Bob Dylan’s “Every Grain of Sand,” while the Blind Boys, four octogenarians among them, sing like men a third their age on the upbeat “I Shall Not Be Moved.” Recorded over four days at Vernon’s Wisconsin studio, I’ll Find a Way includes traditional gospel hymns alongside well-chosen country, blues, and soul tunes.
Brilliant Southern Album
Great spin, great mix of new instruments with old songs. Jimmy Carter's duet with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon on Dylan's Every Grain of Sand is good for the soul.
I can't stop listening to it!!
