North Mississippi Allstars will release their seventh album, 'World Boogie Is Coming', on September 3rd. The record was largely self-produced by the band at their Zebra Ranch Studios in Hernando, Mississippi. It's blusier than ever.

Luther Dickinson says, “It all started when Seasick Steve told me: ‘You are the one, you are the link, you have to keep it primitive and take it to the people.’” He continues, “I feel like I owe it the elders who taught me the traditional music in which I operate to let the music evolve and allow outside modern influences into the tradition to keep it alive and healthy. I realized that I had not been holding up my end of the deal. Since I am virtually devoid of modern influences, I turned to my brother Cody, who is my opposite in taste and style and loves modern music and production. Allowing Cody to produce the tracking sessions allowed me to sing and play wild and with abandon. Our contrasting styles are the heart of NMA.”
