Immigrance, the new Snarky Puppy studio album, is all about movement. “The idea here is that everything is fluid, that everything is always moving and that we’re all in a constant state of immigration,” explains Michael League.

It's heeeeeeere! "Immigrance" is now out worldwide (Japan, we got you on April 3) digitally and on CD with vinyls shipping out next Friday. A lot of people put a lot of love into making this album, and I hope you feel it. Big shout out to Zeycan Alkis and Amalia Drewes for their work on the art and layout, Nic Hard and Dave McNair on making it sound pretty, Stella K for running the cameras, Rosanna Freedman for handling all the ugly details, the whole Sonic Ranch posse for their hard work and beautiful space, Mike Chadwick and Sue Handley for managing it all, and last but certainly not least, the dudes who wrote and played their little tukkies off for ten days on the Texican border.

"Bad Kids To The Back" Premieres On Rolling Stone

In an obvious departure from the live-in-the-studio video format we've used for so many years, we asked the great French animator Michaël Alcaras to cook up something weird for us. Using studio footage from the Immigrance sessions on the Texas/Mexico border at Sonic Ranch Recording Studio (shot by Stella K), I'd say he succeeded. Special shout out to rollerblades, eyeball lasers, drum trades, Kubrick, and cows in space. Enjoy our second single “Bad Kids To The Back” written by Justin Stanton.

New Single “Xavi” Available Now

The first single from our new album, “Immigrance,” is now available worldwide. After three years without making a record, it feels so good to put something new out into the world. This track, “Xavi,” is inspired by a beautiful experience we had in Morocco at last year's Gnawa Music Festival in Essaouira, sharing a week of rehearsal and performance with the country's most respected guimbre master, Hamid El Kasri حميد القصري, and his incredible group of musicians. We hope you enjoy it (and feel beat one in the right place).     -Michael League

The full album “Immigrance” drops March 15.

Snarky Puppy is truly a different kind of musical animal.

The once Texan, now New York-based quasi-collective Snarky Puppy has gone from the best-kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music. Although still "underground" in many respects, the band earned its first Grammy Award in early 2014 (for Best R&B Performance), followed by two more in the subsequent years, and has earned high praise from critical stalwarts like the BBC, Village Voice, The Guardian, New York Times, and Washington Post, as well as the world’s most respected musicians, from Pat Metheny to Prince. Since 2014, their albums have topped Billboard Jazz, Billboard Contemporary Jazz, Billboard Heatseeker, and iTunes Jazz charts. The band has always used live performance as its chief form of evangelism, and over the last 8 years has maintained a more intense tour schedule than almost any band in the idiom with over 1,200 performances.
