Sacred steel supergroup The Word have announced their sophomore album, Soul Food, to be released on May 5th via Vanguard Records. The Word consists of Robert Randolph, John Medeski, and the North Mississippi Allstars [Cody Dickinson, Luther Dickinson, Chris Chew].

The dynamic group put out their debut self-titled album in 2001, launching a then-unknown Robert Randolph into the limelight. The group has reunited to tour and perform at festivals sporadically throughout the past decade and a half, though Soul Food marks the very first studio collaboration since the band's initial formation.

Recording sessions began last year, held in both New York and Memphis. A statement from Dickinson read, "The recording locations of New York City and Memphis represent who the Word is... The spirit of each city, different though they might be, each sets us free. And 14 years after our first album, it is so thrilling to hear what our collective power for improvisation has become. We're ready to go anywhere the inspiration takes us."


While the tracklist for the album has yet to be finalized, it will include guest vocalists Amy Helm and Ruthie Foster on two songs - a big deal, considering the group's music is largely instrumental. Check out the preview for the new album below:
