Cure The Jones

UK-based soul titans Mamas Gun announce new album Cure The Jones out April 1 and share digitally today a stunning new single ‘Looking For Moses’ -  a lush, nuanced and expansively contemporary meditation on a world turned upside down, embedded in the classic soul tradition of Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye and Labi Siffre.

Written the day Bill Withers passed away, ‘Looking For Moses’ pays righteous homage to the great soul man with Andy Platts’ honeyed vocals bringing apposite warmth to a joyously groovy and beautifully crafted slice of soul.

Platts says "Looking For Moses was the track that kicked off the writing for the album. Everything was panic stations at the time, it was my daughter that inspired the first set up with the lyrics "her mama says she can't go out, baby girl maybe one day you'll understand, when all of this is in the past". I wanted to imbue it with a bit of hope too - it's about leaning on your beliefs but more so it's about standing united and staying the course, and the reality of simply getting by and getting through life”

Building on 2018 album Golden Days and the band’s status as a world-renowned live act, 11-track opus Cure The Jones represents Mamas Guns’ most complete and powerful work to date - a joyous and sophisticated exposition of song-craft, that explores themes of love, loss, life through the most pressing social and political issues of the day.

Written and produced during the pandemic by Mamas Gun frontman Andy Platts with additional intricate soundscaping from drummer Chris Boot, Cure The Jones was recorded direct to tape with an array of analogue gear at Platts’ home studio in just three days, focussing the soulful energy of the band into a coherent gospel-tinged whole.
