Soulive and Lettuce co-founder Eric Krasno will release a new single “Waiting On Your Love” ahead of his new album, Blood From A Stone, to be released on July 8th on his Feel Music/Round Hill label. Guest appearances on his sophomore album include Derek Trucks, in addition to members of Soulive, Lettuce, and The London Souls. The first track will be widely available on April 22nd, via all digital music outlets.
Blood From A Stone finds Krasno not just on guitar but also on vocals. “I’ve been writing songs with vocals for other people for a while,” he explains. “With these songs, we initially wrote them thinking others would sing them, so when I was in the studio with different artists, sometimes I’d introduce one of the tracks and they’d record it, but it wouldn’t necessarily work out. Eventually, I realized it was because I’d written these songs for myself.” The GRAMMY award winning guitarist/songwriter/producer has writing and production credits for his work with Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks, 50 Cent, Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville, and Allen Stone, to name a few.
Krasno will celebrate the release of Blood From A Stone on July 7 at Brooklyn Bowl, a fitting kick-off seeing as it’s also the venue’s 7th anniversary party.
