Soul Fixin'

Anthony Hamilton Gearing Up For New Release Al Green and Mavis Staples' love child Anthony Hamilton is putting the finishing touches on a new project. Previous releases, Comin' From Where I'm From and Ain't Nobody Worryin' are a superb blend of country, soul, and gospel. Hamilton describes his upcoming release, The Point of It All, as "a great body of work- new songs, new attitudes." Hamilton says the uptempo vibe of the album may surprise some fans, "I want to give them something they can jam to as well, the first single off the album will be a little bit more upbeat.” Anthony Hamilton collaborated with Al Green on his latest release Lay It Down, speaking of the experience Anthony Hamilton said “I learned a lot about how you give it [music] to people, how raw you can be, and how open and honest you can be in your music.”

The Point of It All is expected to drop later this year.
