Gregg Allman’s Final Studio Album
Released September 8 2017
Southern Blood by Gregg Allman (to be issued on September 8 via Rounder Records) will serve as a final testament from an artist whose contributions have truly shaped rock & roll throughout the past four decades.
It will be Allman’s first all-new recording since 2011’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated solo landmark Low Country Blues, with the new album reportedly among the most uniquely personal of the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s career. It will be a collection of songs written by friends and favorite artists including Jackson Browne, Willie Dixon, Jerry Garcia, Robert Hunter, Lowell George, Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn, and is meant to serve as a salutary farewell to devoted fans and admirers.
Allman collaborated on his closing project with manager and friend Michael Lehman and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Don Was, a longtime acquaintance and staunch supporter committed to helping the rock icon actualize his very specific aspirations.
You can listen to ‘My Only True Friend’ now.
