Encore, the highly anticipated new album from acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Anderson East, will be released January 12 on Atlantic Records.
Encore was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio along with additional production at House of Blues and Farmland Studio. The album features eleven songs, including recent single All On My Mind, which was co-written by Ed Sheeran.
The release of ‘All On My Mind’ culminates a breakout series of years for East following his widely praised debut album, Delilah. The Times noted of the release, “his version of George Jackson’s classic Find ’Em, Fool ’Em and Forget ’Em is superb, while Devil in Me, a country music confessional on being in a bar on a Saturday night and spotting a very attractive woman, makes a honky tonk in Nashville seem like the centre of the universe.” NPR Music called the album “an eclectic, fully formed debut…” Additional critical praise included The Wall Street Journal who described, “…highlighted by Mr. East’s raw and raspy vocals and a backing band that channels the urgent rhythms and gospel-flavored sounds of ‘60s R&B and Southern soul music.”
After the release of his solo album, East once again worked with producer Dave Cobb when he featured on the Grammy Award-winning producers Southern Family compilation, contributed a song to Brandi Carlile’s Cover Stories LP and crafted the original song ‘What Would It Take’ for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.
