Snarky Puppy Releases “Embossed”, First In Series Of Bonus Tracks From ‘Immigrance’ Recording Sessions [Listen]

first_imgIn March, three-time Grammy-winning, jazz-funk collective Snarky Puppy released their 12th studio album, Immigrance, via the band’s GroundUP Music label. The follow-up to 2016’s Grammy-winning Culcha Vulcha is highlighted by a distinctly different, dark and heavier tone.On Friday, Snarky Puppy released a new tune, “Embossed”. Written by the band’s own Bill Laurance, “Embossed” is the first in a series of bonus and extended tracks from the Immigrance recording sessions. The remaining five bonus tracks will be released throughout the remainder of 2019.“During the Immigrance sessions, we recorded more songs than we could squeeze onto the album,” says bandleader Michael League. “So, over the course of the year, we’ll be releasing three brand new, full-length compositions by Bill Laurance, Marcelo Woloski, and Bob Reynolds, as well as extended versions of three of the album’s tracks.”Laurance also says of the track, “‘Embossed’ is a reaction to the social, political and environmental anxiety of the times. It’s a musical call to arms, asking the listener to engage both as an individual and as a member of larger movements for change.”Listen to Snarky Puppy’s new track “Embossed” below:Snarky Puppy – “Embossed”[Audio: groundUPmusicNYC]Snarky Puppy recently embarked on a massive world tour in support of their new album, which will run through November.
