Tip the Artist
Adelaide Australia’s Kings & Associates pay homage to James Brown’s musical director, Bobby Byrd, as they put their own spin on his 70s funk deep cut “Back from the Dead.” The tune is the lead track off of their forthcoming album ‘Neighbour’ recorded in Los Angeles in 2019 prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. At its core, “Back from the Dead” is a romance song with hints of grit and nastiness. However, it has a coincidental idiomatic significance to the band and society at large as they are figuratively ‘back from the dead’ after the pandemic halted touring and live music as we know it. The band has coordinated the release of the new single to align with their appearance at the 2022 Echuca-Moana Winter Blues Festival. ‘Neighbor’ will be released in fall 2022 and was produced by Jim Scott, who has worked with numerous icons in modern music such as Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rolling Stones, and many more.
