first_imgGreensky Bluegrass is gearing up for the release of their seventh studio album, All For Money, due out on January 18th, 2019 via the band’s own label, Big Blue Zoo Records. Yesterday, the jamgrass quintet shared a second track, “Do It Alone”, from the upcoming album, following the title track’s release earlier this month.The follow up to 2016’s Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, the new twelve-track record was recorded at Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, NC alongside co-producers Dominic John Davis (Jack White’s longtime bassist) and Glenn Brown. Today, Greensky Bluegrass has shared behind the scenes footage of the band’s in-studio process as they record “Do It Alone”.Speaking about the new track, Paul Hoffman told NPR’s World Cafe,I’d been trying to write a windows-down rock and roll tune for a while. I got out an old guitar of mine, re-strung it, and immediately spit the song out. It’s meant to be an anthem.I ask myself, “Why do I do it alone?” It’s because I’ve got a whole room of thousands singing at the top of their lungs with me. Whenever I write something emotional that might be difficult to sing, I’m reminded of the fact the crowd is there. Hopefully, it’s a reminder for other people as well and we all have something to chant together.Watch Greensky Bluegrass’ behind the scenes footage of their recording process for “Do It Alone” below:Greensky Bluegrass – Behind The Scenes Recording Studio Footage[Video: GreenskyBluegrass]Greensky Bluegrass will celebrate New Year’ Eve at the iconic Riviera Theatre in Chicago from December 28th through the 31st.
