Billboard
has a nice interview with Aaron Neville today, and the first sonic glimpse of Neville's new album, Apache, which will be released July 15. The first single, "Stompin' Ground," is a funk-inlaid tribute to New Orleans, with shoutouts to many musicians, clubs and neighborhoods, from the "way Uptown to the 13th Ward":
"That's all about me growing up in New Orleans and a lot of the people that I ran across in my life," Neville notes. "You get to the part where I'm calling out names; I start out with Moleface and Melvin; I'm Moleface, and Melvin was my friend. We got tight when we were about five years old. And the line about hanging out at the Dew Drop Inn all night long with Mac Rebennack — that's Dr. John — it's just characters who crossed my paths."
