Chris Robinson Brotherhood have unveiled a video for “Chauffeur’s Daughter,” the second single to be released from ‘Servants of the Sun.’ Directed by celebrated photographer Jay Blakesberg, the video captures The CRB performing live at Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA, along with footage from where Robinson resides in Marin County. The video was premiered today at Rolling Stone.
To celebrate the release of ‘Servants of the Sun,’ The CRB have also added a performance at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, June 27. Tickets go on-sale Friday, April 26 at 10am local.
‘Servants of the Sun’ is the CRB’s sixth full-length recording since forming in 2011. It finds the band setting aside the studio explorations of more recent work, instead coming full circle to deliver their most direct, bare bones, rock n’ roll offering since debut companion albums ‘Big Moon Ritual‘ and ‘The Magic Door.’
“I let my head go to a Saturday night at the Fillmore, and said, ‘what’s the best set we could play?'” says Robinson. “The record was conceived from that starting point. With our last couple of albums we made songs we knew we probably weren’t going to play live. This time around every one of these songs will fall into the live repertoire.k”
Bottling the CRB’s pure essence into 10 new songs, ‘Servants of the Sun’ bursts into the clear blue air with the funky upper atmosphere bubbling of vintage keyboards, sky-climbing guitar lines, driving rhythm and the voice of one of rock music’s great singers. A gateway swings wide open to a universe that the Chris Robinson Brotherhood has been tirelessly constructing for eight years through extraordinary musicianship, epic touring and a roving, seemingly bottomless wizard’s chest of sonic delights.
‘Servants Of The Sun’ is available to pre-order on 2-LP Vinyl, CD & Digital formats.
