Delta Spirit's third album finds the band moving away from the roots-rock sound of their earlier records and embracing a broader sonic palette similar to that of My Morning Jacket, Radiohead and Wilco.

"We found the sound that we've been looking for, that we've been growing into, and as soon as we hit on it, we ran with it," says frontman Matt Vasquez. "That’s why it's a self-titled record, so we could connect our identity with the album, because this album is what we think Delta Spirit is. People make records for their time, and we wanted to make one for our time."

The album won't be in stores until March 13th, but you can stream the record in its entirety now.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
