Retro-funk group the Sugarman 3 will release their fourth studio album (first following a ten-year hiatus), What the World Needs Now, on May 15th. Group founder Neal Sugarman believes the group’s comeback record might be their best to date.
“I am really excited about this record,” he says. “Not only has it been almost a decade since the Sugarman 3’s last recording, but without a doubt this feels to me like our best effort yet. The album was recorded at the Daptone Records ‘House of Soul’ studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn in just over three nights, and from the moment we all started playing together, sparks were flying.”
The Sugarman 3’s What the World Needs Now won’t be released until next month, but you can download the soulful instrumental “Rudy’s Intervention” for free here.
