Released by Sony Legacy, PRAYER FOR PEACE seesNorth Mississippi Allstarscontinuing to think globally following 2013s Earth-shaking WORLD BOOGIE IS COMING. That album, the bands seventh studio recording, proved the planetary sensation its title promised, withThe Guardiansimply declaring it the North Mississippi Allstars best yet.

As ever, songs like the powerhouse title track andYou Got To Move the latter featuring accompaniment from Hill Country Blues guitar hero Kenny Brown and award-winning singer/bassist Danielle Nicole pay homage to the bands long lineage of musical heroes, celebrating the blues extraordinary legacy while reshaping and pushing it into contemporary relevance with fatback funk, slippery soul, and pure unadulterated rock n roll.The majority of PRAYER FOR PEACE was recorded at Memphis famed Royal Studios with the great Boo Mitchell behind the board.The hard-touring band also recorded as they traveled the country, lighting up studios in St. Louis, Kansas City, New Orleans, Brooklyn, Austin, and of course, their legendary father Jim Dickinsons Zebra Ranch in the Allstars own Hernando, MS.A number of old friends join the congregation, among them bassist Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band, Dead & Company), Graeme Lesh (Midnight North, The Terrapin Family Band), vocalist Sharisse Norman, bassist Dominic Davis (Jack White), and singer/fife playerShard Thomas, daughter of Mississippi blues giant Otha Turner.Simultaneously master curators, expert revivalists and forward-thinking visionaries, the Dickinson brothers have crafted their mostdaringly creative and provocatively topical collection to date.PRAYER FOR PEACE stands tall as yet another milestone marking North Mississippi Allstars own unique place in the American musical tradition.
