Robert Randolph and the Family Band have released their new single and video "Baptise Me." The song is taken from their new studio album, Brighter Days. Randolph chose to work with producer Dave Cobb on Brighter Days who is best known for his work with new country stars like Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Brandi Carlile, and Jason Isbell.
"Baptise Me" is a joyous romp of a song that makes a direct connection between religious and musical ecstasy and salvation.
"We wrote 'Baptize Me' the first day in the studio. It's really a love story, about an all-round love: for each other, for our audience, for our church background, for the music we love and for our fans. All of these songs kind of harken back to how we started, to being known as this musical family band that comes from the church and appeals to rock, blues, gospel and soul music audiences. We wanted that good gospel, blues, R&B feel, because that's where we started and it's good to not only remind people of that but to actively remember it ourselves."
