Lizz Wright Releases New Album Freedom & Surrender

It has been five years since Wright’s last release, the Gospel themed Fellowship, and now Lizz Wright returns with her most powerful and emotional album yet- Freedom & Surrender. Freedom & Surrender also marks her debut recording for Concord Records. The album will be available everywhere on September 4th and Lizz Wright will be on tour throughout the summer and fall in both Europe and the U.S. in support of the record. Full list of tour dates below.

On Freedom & Surrender, four-time GRAMMY-winning bassist and producer Larry Klein, acted as producer. Klein, who’s best known for his work with such iconic vocalists as Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux, Shawn Colvin and Tracy Chapman, worked with Wright to put together a who’s who of masters to round out both the players and the songwriting collaborators. This includes writing work from Klein, David Batteau, Maia Sharp, J.D. Souther, Toshi Reagon and Jesse Harris. In the studio the pair used drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, bassist Dan Lutz, percussionist Pete Korpela, guitarists Dean Parks and Jesse Harris; and keyboardists Kenny Banks, Pete Kuzma, and Billy Childs .
