Lee Fields, backed by The Expressions, will release Special Night on November 4th via Big Crown Records. Lee Fields has announced tour dates in support of the new album, which will kick off November 4th in Lake Harmony, PA at The Ray Ban + Boiler Room Weekender. He will also be playing Irving Plaza in NYC on January 7th with Lady Wray and Paul & The Tall Trees as well.
Possessing a voice that’s equally raucous and tender, Fields crafts a truly honest, soulful work on Special Night. Lee, as Pitchfork put it, “isn’t indebted specifically to Atlantic or Stax or Philadelphia International or Chess or Fame or Motown so much as it’s indebted to all of them at once.” The title track debuted this summer at Noisey and today, Lee Fields releases album standout “Make The World”, which works both as militaristic funk and a cautionary tale about the health of the planet.
“The world was designed to last indefinitely,” says Fields. “And we’re the only living species on Earth who can alter that process. I’m hoping that song has a chain reaction, helps somebody put into action whatever contribution they can to change what the world is going through.”
