Legendary New Orleans singer-songwriter and pianist Dr. John (aka Mac Rebennack) is set to release his new album, ‘Locked Down‘ on April 3rd on Nonesuch Records. It is collaboration with The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, who produced Locked Down and is featured on the album.
‘Locked Down‘ was conceived as the result of a performance collaboration between Dr. John and longtime fan Auerbach at Bonnaroo 2011. The album was recorded late last year in Nashville at Auberbach’s Easy Eye Sound.
Dr. John will visit the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) for “Dr. John: Insides Out,” an artistic residency with a remarkable group of musical guests, offering three distinct perspectives on his formidable career over nine nights, beginning March 29.
