Snarky Puppy Release First In Series Of Bonus Tracks From Immigrance Recording Sessions Today

Hear “Embossed” here

Massive 109-date, 22-country 2019 world tour underway, first U.S. leg starts May 10th

April 26, 2019 – Snarky Puppy, who have already kicked off their massive 109-date, 22-country world tour, have a special gift for fans – a series of bonus and extended tracks from the recording session for their latest album Immigrance. “Embossed,” written by Snarky Puppy member Bill Laurance, is out today, and the remaining five tracks will be released throughout the remainder of 2019. Immigrance is the follow-up to 2016’s GRAMMY-winning Culcha Vulcha.

“During the Immigrance sessions, we recorded more songs than we could squeeze onto the album,” says band leader Michael League. “So, over the course of the year, we'll be releasing three brand new, full-length compositions by Bill Laurance, Marcelo Woloski, and Bob Reynolds, as well as extended versions of three of the album's tracks.”

Laurance says of the track, "Embossed is a reaction to the social, political and environmental anxiety of the times. It's a musical call to arms, asking the listener to engage both as an individual and as a member of larger movements for change." 

Immigrance, which debuted on five different Billboard charts (including #2 on Heatseekers and #8 on Independent albums), has garnered a wide swath of critical praise, here’s what we’ve been hearing:

“Workouts like ‘Chonks’ and ‘Bigly Strictness’ allow some of the 19 musicians to stretch out with liquid guitar, horn or keyboard solos, yet the band leans into its grooves — more in service to melodies than chops.”

-Rolling Stone

“Winner of three Grammys and numerous other distinctions, the instrumental mega-combo is also a globalist when it comes to musical styles, finding room to add a wide spectrum of world sounds to its jazz and funk foundations.”

-Associated Press

“Snarky Puppy aren’t exactly jazz: their music combines jazz with funk, prog rock, and rhythms and textures from around the world. But they’re almost always interesting, and their new album is definitely worth hearing.”

-Stereogum

“Snarky Puppy might be today’s most popular band whose audience wouldn’t be fazed by a nearly 10-minute-long lead single with no words.”

-New York Times

Immigrance is less about each bandmember's individual improvisational contribution (though there are moments of brilliant soloing), and more focused on the group's intricate, mutative arrangements.”
