ATCO/Atlantic recording group Straight No Chaser has announced details of their extraordinary new album. “UNDER THE INFLUENCE” arrives in stores and at all DSPs on May 7th. Fans can pre-order the album starting today at www.sncmusic.com.
“UNDER THE INFLUENCE” sees the acclaimed a cappella group reimagining a selection of their all time favorite songs alongside many of the superstar artists and undisputed music icons that made them famous. Produced by Mark Kibble, founding member of the legendary a cappella group Take 6 and one of Straight No Chaser’s primary influences, the album includes unprecedented collaborations with some of popular music’s best and brightest – including Phil Collins, Dolly Parton, Rob Thomas, Seal, and Jason Mraz – as Straight No Chaser put their distinctive and inimitable spin on songs known and loved the world over.
“UNDER THE INFLUENCE” is heralded by the new single, “I Want You Back (Feat. Sara Bareilles).” A companion video for SNC’s inventive take on the Jackson 5 classic is streaming now exclusively via Billboard.com (direct link: http://atlr.ec/WZUc7w).
To celebrate the album’s arrival, Straight No Chaser have scheduled a series of special release week concerts, kicking off May 9th at the State Theatre in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Tickets for these dates are available now. Complete details and ticket information for all SNC live events – including a very special Valentine’s Day extravaganza at New York City’s Beacon Theatre on February 14th – can be found at www.sncmusic.com/tour.
The upcoming dates mark a milestone for Straight No Chaser as they feature the return of founding member Steve Morgan, who rejoins the group after the departure late last year of Ryan Ahlwardt. Fans can meet the newest/oldest member of SNC at Straight No Chaser’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/sncmusic.
