Marked by songwriting that is both intensely personal and also an escape, Take Good Care is brimming with sonic complexity, celebration, and catharsis. Sometimes raising more questions than answers, it's a reflection of the up-and-down journey of life that we're all on together. For the first time, The Revivalists recorded and co-wrote with multiple producers and writers, enlisting the talents of Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton), Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Fun., Sleigh Bells), and Dave Bassett (Elle King, Vance Joy) for sessions in New Orleans as well as Nashville, where they recorded at the iconic RCA Studio B, soaking up the aura of one of the most storied studios in music.
Album opener "Otherside" came to life in just one vocal take bolstered by fingerpicked clean guitars and cathedral-size harmonies. The guttural grooves of "Oh No" spiral towards a fret-burning solo as wild and gritty as David Shaw's delivery. "Hate To Love You" is tender and gorgeous and "Change" climaxes on a raw howl. "You Said It All" illuminates the dynamics at the heart of the record. The Revivalists have been on an unbelievable ride where ten years of tireless hard work was unexpectedly revved up by the wrongly dubbed "overnight success" of the No. 1 single "Wish I Knew You," which was recently certified platinum by the RIAA. Now, the band returns with a newfound depth and ambition that has brought their songcraft to a whole new level.
