New singles released

North Mississippi Allstars‘ new album Set Sail will be released on January 28 via New West Records.

The ten-song set was produced by Luther and Cody Dickinson and follows their Grammy-nominated 2019 album Up and RollingSet Sail features appearances by Stax Records legend William Bell on the track “Never Want To Be Kissed” (which Bell also co-wrote and co-produced). 

“Set Sail part 1” (feat. Lamar Williams Jr.)“See The Moon” (feat. Lamar Williams Jr. & Sharisse Norman) & “Didn’t We Have A Time” (see clip below) have been released for airplay .
Listening Through The Lens first caught the band on a New Orleans steamboat on the Mississippi River in 2008 and have been ardent followers since. Their career spans twenty five years, twelve albums and four Grammy nominations.

North Mississippi Allstars open up their world once again on Set Sail, welcoming other family into the fold. As sons of the legendary producer and musician Jim Dickinson, Luther started the band in 1996 as a loose collective of like-minded second-generation musicians who shared a local repertoire and regional style. Over the years, the lineup has shifted by design and here they have mined the talents of Jesse Williams on bass and Lamar Williams, Jr., the son of Allman Brothers bassist Lamar Williams, Sr, on vocals.

“The chemistry we have with this lineup is powerful. We are all second-generation musicians and share a telepathic, relaxed ease about creating and performing. I believe music is a form of communion with our loved ones and conjuring this vibe with members of musical families can be inspirational. Lamar and I are like-minded. I’ve never had the pleasure of working with a singing partner like Lamar. He has a true-blue quality in his musicality that will pull you in and break your heart. At the same time, Jesse grew up playing music with his brothers and his father—as did we. He plays like a sibling. I’m drawn to musical families, regardless of style. Playing with second- or third-generation players allows us an easy unspoken musical dialog. It’s not a big thing; it’s just what we do. We never had to figure out what it means and takes to be a musician. We all inherently know. Each generation has to reinvent itself and shed the skin of the elders. On Set Sail, we feel as if we’ve once again ‘broken the code,’ and know what we want and how to get it.” 

Luther Dickinson
