Good news for southern rock fans, Lynyrd Skynyrd are all set to release an album on the 21st of August, the group’s twelfth.
The band now features Johnny Colt on bass after Powell’s death in 2009. Aside from being the original bassist for The Black Crowes, he also serves bass for Rock Star Supernova, a spot previously taken by Jason Newsted.
In between the two bassists, Lynyrd had a brief stint with Robert Kearns too, who left the band stating no official Reason.
The group released their first single from the new album on July 9th, in the form of a digital download through iTunes. Apart from this, there are 10 other songs for you to rock your socks off to!
In the meanwhile, here’s classic sounding Freebird, quite possibly the greatest guitar duet of all time.
