Tedeschi Trucks Band Announce Four Album Rock Experience, ‘I Am The Moon’

Tedeschi Trucks Band has announced their plans to release a four album and four film experience titled I Am The Moon. The ambitious project will push the band into a new era.

The albums include I Am The Moon, I. Crescent, II. Ascension, III. The Fall, and IV. Farewell, will be released in succession, starting 6/3. The first film will debut 5/31 at 9 PM on the band’s Youtube channel, with the films coming three days before its partner album. Directed by Alix Lambert, the films combine studio and performance footage with photography and other images designed to capture the specific atmosphere of each album. 

The concept for I Am The Moon came from the band’s vocalist Mike Mattison, while they were on hiatus due to the pandemic. Drawing inspiration from the 12th century poem “Layla & Majnun” by Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi, the albums explore themes of love, collective struggle and faith.

Each band member contributed their own unique perspectives to the work and by January 2021, they were recording at Tedeschi and Trucks’ home studio, Swamp Raga, in Jacksonville, FL. Derek Trucks served as producer and long-time studio engineer Bobby Tis was in charge of recording and mixing.

Tedeschi Trucks Band will kick off their 2022 tour in Florida, Alabama and Michigan before stopping at Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua, NY. They will also appear at the Great South Bay Music Festival, Artpark and SPAC.

Preorders for I Am The Moon are available now.
