'Where The Purple Flowers Grow' was written and recorded during the 2020 quarantine, and is the last batch of songs featuring the original 3 man Royal Horses lineup. At the time of making the record, the band had just come off of three years playing shows nonstop, and were as tight as ever. “Purple Flowers” features a heavier use of studio overdubs than any of the bands other work. Songwriter, Shelby Kemp, said about the album “Purple Flowers represents a pivot point in my approach to writing songs”. This album was a close collaboration between Royal Horses and New Orleans based producer John Michael Early.
