The Blind Boys of Alabama haven’t lost their spark over their seven-plus decade, and on their new track “Jubilee,” the veteran gospel group finds bliss with Patty Griffin. “Are you ready for jubilee to come?” sing Griffin and the Boys over rambunctious piano and a smoldering call-and-response free-for-all. But that joy comes at price: material possessions and dear friends must be left behind. “Are you ready to turn in the keys to your mansion?” asks Griffin.
“Jubilee” will be on the Blind Boys of Alabama’s upcoming album, I’ll Find a Way, produced by Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. The album is due out October 1st, and is available for pre-order here.
