Delta Rae To Release New Album ‘The Light’ March 20Folk Sextet Set For Massive 2020 With New Music & Northeastern Tour
Listen to Pre-Release Album Cut “Take Me There” HERE
Folk-rock sextet Delta Rae are gearing up for 2020 in a big way with the release of their forthcoming album The Light, out 3.20. The Light is Delta Rae’s first album since 2015’s After It All, and their most emotionally robust. The group have also unveiled a slew of Northeast dates supporting The Lightfor spring of next year, their first full tour as an independent band.
Conceived as a sister album with The Dark (out in 2021), The Light sees the alt-Americana sextet tackling life’s bigger mysteries, with each song crafted using The Tarot’s major arcana as inspiration and tracing the band back to its origins: convening in a house in the woods of Durham, North Carolina, writing songs that were honest, genreless explorations of their lives and emotional interiors. From reveling in the power of love (“Back to The Garden - The Empress”) to crafting anthems of empowerment (“Stronger Than A Lion - Strength”), Delta Rae pivots between doo-wop and folk sounds to deliver a genre-bending sonic quest.
Check out Rolling Stone's feature on the The Light and upcoming tour HERE.
The group are kicking their performance into high-gear for the tour, plotting an ambitious on-stage 80s heavenscape to enrapture fans. The tour kicks off at 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. on April 9th and will take the band throughout the Northeast, setting the Southern storytellers up for an exciting and active spring on the road.
