Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe has released the second single, “Change My Way”, from their forthcoming studio album, Gnomes & Badgers–due out March 8th via Seven Spheres Records. Marking the group’s first new recording in five years, the new collection of music faithfully displays the road warriors’ live aesthetic in a studio setting.

Today’s iteration of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe features guitarist DJ Williams, lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman, trumpeter Chris Littlefield, organist David Veith, bassist Chris Stillwell, and drummer Zak Najor. On the studio album, the band is joined by The Rolling Stones keyboardist and Allman Brothers Band alum Chuck Leavell, guitar-slinging singer-songwriter Lukas Nelson, New Orleans guitar hero Anders Osborne, Austin producer and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Quesada, and NOLA R&B royal Ivan Neville.
Following the release of “I’m Your Biggest Fan“, today’s new song comes in the form of a music video and addresses the current crisis at the U.S. border. “Change My Way” was co-written with Anders Osborne and co-produced with Adrian Quesada (Brownout, Spanish Gold).
As Denson tells Paste Magazine about the song, “‘Change My Way’ is a discussion about borders, boundaries, love and law.” Herrington adds, “Both the song and the video is a body of work seeking answers to some fundamental questions: Where would America be without the benefit of colordiversity of different races, faces, beliefs and creeds? What happened to ‘Love Thy Neighbor’? What happened to ‘Give me your tired, huddled masses yearning to be free’? Remember we were them not too long ago.”

In support of the 11-track new album, KDTU will head out on the road with Kung Fu and Urban Gorilla Orchestra. The band also has an official set at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 26th, as well as a tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, at The Orpheum Theater on May 3rd, and summer festival appearances at High Sierra Music Festival and Floydfest. Denson then picks up his reoccurring role as touring saxophonist with The Rolling Stones on their U.S. summer tour.
