Devon Allman has announced his first new solo LP in eight years, Miami Moon, featuring an all-star band comprised of George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, Adam Deitch, Karl Denson, and Jackson Stokes.

Dropping August 16th via Allman’s own Create Records, Miami Moon was recorded on 2” analog tape at the historic Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida, where both Derek and the DominosLayla and Other Assorted Love Songs and the Allman Brothers Band‘s Eat a Peach were made. Allman described the album, which was produced by Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Chrstone “Kingfish” Ingram), as “a throwback 70’s funk-infused R&B record.”

“Making the Miami Moon record with these legendary musicians has been a high point of my career,” Allman said. “They brought these songs to life with their masterful playing and timeless feels. As for the approach, a couple things were different this time: First, writing the songs on bass guitar was a first for me and allowed the grooves to be the main focus. Also, letting go of some previous, limiting thought processes allowed some of my other influences to enter the chat for the first time such as Curtis Mayfield, Sade, The Cure, Steely Dan…among others. I believe you can hear some flourishes of those true loves on this album. Additionally, recording in the same hallowed halls where Dad made the Eat a Peach record and where Uncle Duane and Eric Clapton recorded the Layla record, made for a very special setting for us all to work in. We kept it fun and we kept it funky…..we ordered Cuban food, watched the NBA and jammed in a circle for days. In a world where you can make records in the basement or your bedroom, I’m so grateful to have done this record in a classic manner.”

Devon Allman will premiere the first single from the new album, “White Horse”, along with an official music video via Relix this Thursday, June 6th before releasing it everywhere on Friday, June 7th.
