Second single to be lifted from Youngblood Brass Band’s fourth album, ‘Pax Volumi
“Ain’t Nobody”, out now, is the second single to be lifted from Youngblood Brass Band’s fourth album, ‘Pax Volumi’, which follows in September. This 12” vinyl and digital single release comes midway through a busy year of touring, with recent sold-out headlines across the UK, Europe and the USA, and return visits planned over the Summer and Autumn.
The first single from “Pax Volumi” was “20 Questions” (3rd June), an original track which announced the band’s comeback to their eager fanbase, and also pricked up many new ears, winning support from the likes of Craig Charles (BBC 6Music), Gilles Peterson (BBC 6Music) and Lefto among others.
Now, the eagerly anticipated release of “Ain’t Nobody”, which has been going down a storm in live gigs, showcases the band’s mastery of the popular brass cover version. The R ‘n’ B classic in their hands becomes a blistering instrumental workout that is already putting grins on faces this festival season, and which highlights Youngblood’s chops as a traditional, hard-working, heart-and-soul American brass band, in thrall to the ways and the lessons of their spiritual home New Orleans.
