Chart-topping rock band The Revivalists are raising spirits with the release of their live studio video for “You and I (Made In Muscle Shoals).” The fan-favorite song was re-imagined for the band’s recent Made In Muscle Shoals EP after first appearing on Take Good Care (Loma Vista Recordings) – a treat for fans who have been hearing the song live for years. Recorded and filmed at the legendary FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the new version of “You and I” propels front man David Shaw’s incredible, instantly recognizable vocals forward as the band create a new groovy take on the track. “We had no preconceived notion about how we wanted the songs to change before going into FAME Studios. We really wanted the vibe of the room to guide us to that place. ‘You and I’ really took its shape once Zack landed on that new riff you hear in the beginning,” shares Shaw.

At the top of the year, The Revivalists surprised fans with their live studio EP, Made In Muscle Shoals, which features brilliant re-imaginings of the band’s hit singles “Oh No,” “Change,” and “All My Friends” from their latest studio album, Take Good Care, a soulful rendition of The Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody,” a gorgeous stripped down piano-and-vocal take of their platinum-selling hit “Wish I Knew You,” and brand new song “Bitter End.” The band also released an accompanying documentary which was recorded and filmed at the legendary FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and directed by Jay Sansone of Human Being Media. Capturing the essence of the band at this exciting time in their 10-year journey, the documentary gives the deepest insight yet into what makes the band tick against the backdrop of Muscle Shoals, a location steeped in the many classic styles of American music that informs the New Orleans-based band’s signature sound.
