Sun King Rising has just released an 11-minute teaser video for their upcoming debut album, Delta Tales, slated for an early October release. The video samples the album’s ten tasty Americana tracks, infused with plenty of southern rock and blues and the perfect touch of Gospel seasoning to soothe the soul.
The recording, mixing, and mastering for Delta Tales is complete and out of post-production. The artwork is being designed now at the label and manufacturing is just around the corner.
The album features 25 top musicians and vocalists from across the USA: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Utah, Mississippi, and Tennessee further infusing this album with a gritty Americana rock sensibility. Sun King Rising is the solo project of singer-songwriter John Blangero who hails from the great state of Texas. John enlisted legendary Ohio producer Ace Acker for the project and the result is stunning.
Asked how he would describe his musical palette as a painter might describe it, Blangero replied, “Like cane fields in a Deep South Delta. I paint my music as an impressionist paints the sun. You can almost smell the heat and humidity and the soil of the wetlands. My musical landscapes are human textures of toil, honor, hospitality, and grace, steeped in the religious symbolism of southern culture.”
Nine of the album’s tracks are original compositions, with one surprising southern soul band cover thrown in to rock the house. Blangero cites the Rolling Stones, Joe Cocker, Leon Russell, Humble Pie, and Dan Penn as his principal inspirations for Delta Tales.
