Los Angeles, CA Black Dub, a powerful new group led by celebrated guitarist and producer Daniel Lanois, will release their debut Jive album on November 2. Black Dub is a distinctive, rock-edged album featuring an outstanding level of musicianship and a soulful, symphonic commentary informed by Jamaican dub culture. The band features Lanois on guitar, New Orleans virtuoso Brian Blade, who has performed with such jazz titans as Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock, on drums, the impassioned vocals of Belgian born Trixie Whitley, the beautiful 22-year-old daughter of the late, great Texas bluesman, Chris Whitley and rounding out the quartet is famed Louisiana bass player Daryl Johnson.

Black Dub recorded the album in Los Angeles with a focus on live sessions often done in one take. Lanois recently told Rolling Stone magazine "I had been fantasizing about putting a band together for a long time that would allow me to write music with a funkier angle." The music is accompanied by a series of live off the floor videos that Black Dub has been posting on their new website (click to watch a performance of the single I Believe In You ).

The eleven tracks on the album include the single I Believe In You, (click to listen) the bluesy, sexy Surely and the beautiful gospel-like Caanan. Two trademark Lanois instrumentals Slow Baby and Sirens round out the album.

Over the years, Lanois has carved out a reputation as a sonic iconoclast, skilled in conjuring up deep, ethereal, almost 3-D soundscapes. He makes haunting, music layered with electronic waves of unearthly guitars and eerie pedal steel playing.

Among his credits, Lanois produced Bob Dylan s Grammy winning 1997, Time Out of Mind, and U2 s anthemic 1987 breakthrough, The Joshua Tree. He has produced music for an array of genre busting artists, including Brian Eno, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and the Neville Brothers.
