Listen to Alabama Shakes’ BBC Radio 6 Music session

Group showcased tracks from new album ‘Sound & Color’.

Earlier this week, Alabama Shakes visited BBC Radio 6 Music’s studios to perform a session on the Lauren Laverne show.

Showcasing songs from their ‘Sound & Color’ LP, they also spoke about a last-minute secret show at London Oslo, “intense and responsive” UK crowds and the spirit of their live shows - “everybody’s in the zone - that’s the goal”, said Brittany Howard.

The band performed ‘Don’t Wanna Fight’ and ‘Future People’.

Listen back to the 6 Music session below.
