A collaboration between producer and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Quesada and singer/songwriter Eric BurtonBlack Pumas fuse cinematic neo-soul, light psychedelia, and a touch of urban grit. Rising from their studio origins to become a hard-hitting live act, the group released their debut album in 2019.  Burton’s dynamic and soulful vocals are a perfect match for the retro-funk- and R&B-flavored music Quesada co-creates.

Their self-titled debut album Black Pumas saw the band nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s Grammy Awards, and has sold over 175,000 album equivalents since its release last summer.  The band also received two 2020 Americana Music Honors & Awards nominations, for Best Duo/Group of the Year and Emerging Act of the Year.

The deluxe reissue includes a set of 11 exciting bonus tracks – three new unreleased originals (“I’m Ready,” “Red Rover,” “Black Cat,” the band’s first new songs since the album’s release last summer); three live in-studio versions (“Colors,” “Oct 33,” “Confines”); a live version of “Know You Better” recorded at C-Boys Heart & Soul, the Austin club where the band first made a name for itself; and covers of the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby,” Death’s “Politicians in My Eyes,” Bobby “Blue” Bland’s “Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City,” and Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.”
