Al Green Links With ?uestlove On New Album
On May 27, Green and Blue Note Records will release Lay It Down. The album features assistance from Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson and James Poyser (The Soulquarians) and well as the musicians behind famed Brooklyn Funk outfit The Dap Kings.
Of the project, Green noted, "That's the only way I know how to work, that's what I've done all my life. You just write it from here," said the reverend, tapping his heart. "That's what we do every Sunday. We never write a sermon now. If you can't preach out of here"--tapping his chest again--"you have nothing to say anyway. It's all from the heart, this whole album, from start to finish."
