FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Friday, August 26th, 2022 - Tedeschi Trucks Band, the GRAMMY-winning rock and soul 12-piece led by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, have released I Am The Moon: Episode IV. Farewell, the final chapter of their acclaimed 4-LP and 4-Companion album cycle, I Am The Moon. Listen to/purchase, I Am The Moon HERE. Fans can also stream the album-length companion visual from filmmaker Alix Lambert on the band's YouTube Channel.

An astonishing amalgamation of soul, rock, blues, funk, psyche, roots and Eastern influences, the project’s sweeping artistic ambition—and the sheer quality of its songwriting and musicianship—makes I Am The Moon one of the year’s most essential recordings. This week, the groundswell of excitement reached a crescendo in anticipation of the journey’s concluding episode as enthusiastic fans from all over the globe have embraced this project like no other in the band’s history.  

In his bio notes, esteemed music journalist David Fricke summarized Farewell

Farewell – the final record in the groundbreaking studio release by Tedeschi Trucks Band, I Am The Moon – concludes a remarkable adventure and new beginning for the group, now in its 12th year as America's premier rock & roll big band: four distinct and, at the same time, deeply connected albums with a total of 24 original songs capturing the power of devotion in a time of crisis and separation, with a renewed energy in collective songwriting and performance. Opening with the lusty confrontation of "Last Night In The Rain" and ending with the rousing benediction "Another Day," Farewell is "a wish of well-being at parting," as one dictionary defines that word – with more road and love ahead.”

On Monday, August 22nd, Tedeschi Trucks Band performed their uplifting and poignant new single, "Soul Sweet Song," on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, watch it HERE. TTB also performed three additional songs from I Am The Moon for a special KIMMEL ‘off-air’ livestream, watch it HERE.

TTB began the west coast run of their Wheels of Soul tour this past week with triumphant performances at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Berkeley. In their glowing show review, Glide Magazine raved, “The night of glorious soul, rock, and blues included guest sit-ins, powerful new music, and exceptional performances.” See full dates below.

TTB’s Mike Mattison recently sat down with PRX The World to discuss Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi’s “Layla & Majnun,” the influential epic romance poem that was the thematic throughline of I Am The Moon. Listen to the interview here. In addition, Derek Trucks spoke with Rick Beato for a far-reaching interview that delves into Derek’s one-of-kind guitar/audio technique, his deep-rooted jazz influences. Watch here.
