Rocker Goes Back To Roots.

NEW YORK, NY, January 09, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Sha-La Music announces the release of the new album Rock’n’Roll 4 The Soul by US Roots Rocker DownTown Mystic. The album will be digitally released on February 9 and distributed worldwide via The Orchard/Sony Music. The Eyes of The World single will be released in conjunction with the album and drops at Radio on January 22 via Stephen’s Indie Picks.

Rock’n’Roll 4 The Soul contains 11 tracks, including the 6 core tracks that started the DownTown Mystic project—Turn Around and Go, Lost and Found, Brian Jones, Think It Over, Soul’d Out and Think a Little Louder. Like previous releases, the album features stellar musicians, including the Hall of Fame rhythm section of The E Street BandMax Weinberg & Garry Tallent, as well as Steve Holley & Paul Page from Ian Hunter’s Rant Band and PJ Farley & Steve Brown of Trixter.

Rock’n’Roll 4 The Soul is another strong example of the DownTown Mystic RnR Catalog. It brings the roots rocker back to where it all began. DownTown Mystic writer/producer Robert Allen remembers, “I was producing modern rockers The Discontent and started to get the urge to record my own music again. I decided to cut 6 songs with the band just to see how they would turn out.” Robert continues, “I finished 3 tracks and decided to release Lost and Found as DownTown Mystic on a Radio Industry CD Sampler. I got a call that the track was played by tastemaker Jed The Fish as his “catch of the day” on World Famous KROQ in LA. That’s how DownTown Mystic got discovered.”

2023 was a banner year for DownTown Mystic. The career-defining success of the AmeriKarma album at Radio and Streaming gained a wider audience for the artist with airplay on over 4000 stations in 36 countries. The artist also continued his sync-licensing success with a song featured on Fox TV’s popular 911:Lonestar with Rob Lowe. 2024 promises more of the same with a song in the upcoming movie Everything’s Going to Be Great starring Bryan Cranston and Allison Janney. With RnR making a comeback, this will be the year when the world gets some Rock’n’Roll 4 The Soul.
