Gov’t Mule announce new album Peace… Like A River, launch Dreaming Out Loud single

From Loudersoud.

Gov’t Mule have announced a new album. Peace… Like A River will be the band’s 13th studio album, and the follow-up to 2021’s Heavy Load Blues

Peace… Like A River will be released on Fantasy Records on June 16, and is preceded by a single, Dreaming Out Loud, which features Ivan Neville – son of Neville Brothers lynchpin Aaron Neville – and gospel blues singer Ruthie Foster. The video for the single is below, as is a “making of” trailer for the album.

Peace… Like A River is very ambitious from a musical arrangement standpoint in the way that a lot of the songs take twists and turns that are not common in today’s pop music world,” says Gov’t Mules’s Warren Haynes. “At the same time, it’s very much a song record and covers a lot of ground, stylistically speaking. Song for song maybe my favourite one.”

In addition Neville and Foster, guests on the album include ZZ Top‘s Billy Gibbons, actor and musician Billy Bob Thornton, and Celisse Henderson, who’s played guitar with the likes of Graham Nash, Melissa Etheridge and Phish man Trey Anastasio’s Ghosts Of The Forest. The album was recorded with co-producer John Paterno during the sessions that produced Heavy Load Blues, but using different equipment in different rooms, in order to give each project its own character.

Gov’t Mule embark on a tour in support of the album at the New Orleans Orpheum Theater in Louisiana on May 5, before the band are joined by Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening for a Dark Side Of The Mule tour in July. Full dates below.

Peace… Like A River is available to pre-order now (opens in new tab).
