Xavier Rudd returns with the euphoric new single “Walk Away,” his first new material since 2015. Poignant and uplifting “Walk Away” is one of Xavier's most powerful songs to date – seamlessly weaving philosophy and music. Produced by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Tom Speight) and mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, David Bowie, U2), “Walk Away” is taken from Xavier’s forthcoming new album Storm Boy, which showcases his incomparable songwriting craftsmanship and is an impressive addition to his ever-growing legacy.
Originally released in 1964, Golden Boy features drummer Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers performing songs from the Lee Adams and Charles Strouse Broadway musical for which the album is titled. Based off the play, written by Clifford Odets and William Gibson, Golden Boy was a socially conscious musical about a Harlem prize-fighter trying to escape his working class roots. A somewhat obscure Blakey release, Golden Boy nonetheless features plenty of improvisatory, hard bop firepower.
