Drive-By Truckers 13th studio album, THE NEW OK arrives mere months after the release of the bands highly acclaimed THE UNRAVELING. Originally conceived as a quarantine EP collecting material recorded in Memphis during sessions for THE UNRAVELING, the project quickly grew to include provocative new songs written and recorded over what Drive-By Truckers co-founder Patterson Hood calls this endless summer of protests, riots, political shenanigans and pandemic horrors. Tracks such as Hoods Watching The Orange Clouds inspired by the protests which followed George Floyds murder by Minneapolis police and a fiery cover of The Ramones classic The KKK Took My Baby Away (vocals by bassist Matt Patton) were exchanged between Hood, co-founding singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Cooley, bassist Patton, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jay Gonzalez, and drummer Brad Morgan and then mixed by longtime DBT producer David Barbe.
