On June 25th, Booker T’s much anticipated album, Sound the Alarm, will be released via Stax Records. The album features collaborations with artists such as Mayer Hawthorne, Estelle, Gary Clark Jr., and Vintage Trouble. Each song features contemporary styles but still maintains the elements of Booker T’s legendary organ playing that helped to pioneer the music we listen to today. And while there are many modern aspects to Sound the Alarm, the album still contains the soul and feeling that Booker T and the MG’s were able to create in the 60s. You can stream the rest of the album here and listen to two of my favorite songs below.
