Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes has released a new track, “History Repeats,” from her upcoming debut solo album, Jaime, due Sept. 20.
In a statement announcing the album, Howard said “‘History Repeats’ is as much a personal song as it is a song about us as a human species. Our times of success may propel us forward, but our repeating failures hold us back from evolving into harmony.”
According to The Rolling Stone, Howard stepped away from Alabama Shakes last year to pursue a solo album and “needed to be in control of everything: the music, the arrangements, all that stuff.”
Howard also announced a 17-date tour beginning Aug. 17. Stops include Ryman Auditor in Nashville, TN Aug. 9, and Riviera Theatre in Chicago, IL Sept. 20.
