Keith Co-Produces Aaron Neville Album

Keith Richards and longtime Stones producer Don Was have produced soul and R&B vocalist Aaron Neville’s latest album, due for release on Blue Note Records this autumn.

“Aaron Neville is one of the most expressive and soulful artists of all time…it’s such a thrill to hear him sing,” says Don Was. “His vocals have a way of reaching into your heart and stirring something really deep inside. It’s a huge honor to welcome him to Blue Note Records and to be involved, along with the legendary Keith Richards, in the production of this album.”

The album consists of doo-wop covers that Neville selected himself. He says, “When I was a kid, doo-wop was like medicine to me,” Neville explains. “I didn’t care what else was goin’ on in the world as long as I could sing along with Pookie Hudson and The Spaniels, The Flamingos, The Clovers, Sonny Til and The Orioles, Clyde McPhatter—I was like a kid in a candy store.”

The album features Keith on guitar alongside session players Greg Leisz on guitar (Beck, Sheryl Crow, Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams), Benmont Tench on organ (founding member of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), George G. Receli on drums (Bob Dylan, James Brown), and Tony Scherr on bass (Bill Frisell, Norah Jones, Rufus Wainwright).
