Americana Highways presents this premiere of the Hooten Hallers’ song “Back in Business Again,” the title track for their forthcoming album, due out on Free Dirt Records on September 9. This song will be release, though, on July 22. Back in Business Again was produced by Dominic Davis (Jack White, Greensky Bluegrass) and recorded in St. Louis at Native Sound.
Musicians on the album are Andy Rehm on drums, John Randall on guitars and vocals, Kellie Everett on baritone and bass saxophones, Dominic Davis on bass, and Ryan Koenig on harmonica. Laying down a funky groove, the Hooten Hallers take off on wings of melodic saxophone and an optimistic return to business. “My baby’s looking so fine, I got two bottles of wine… I’m back in business again.”
“Back in Business Again” is a feel good song about shaking off the dust and finding joy where there previously was none. It’s about getting your groove back. Even though it was written prior to the pandemic, we felt like this song ended up being a bit about our careers to the point where it felt like an appropriate encapsulation of the album as a whole and a great choice for the title track. — John Randall
