Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard will release her debut solo album in September

Check out lead single ‘History Repeats'.

Brittany Howard – lead vocalist/guitarist for Alabama Shakes – will release her debut solo album later this year.

‘Jaime’ is due on 20th September via Columbia Records, preceded by lead single ‘History Repeats’ and a trio of European shows.

“‘History Repeats’ is as much a personal song as it is a song about us as a human species,” says Brittany. “Our times of success may propel us forward, but our repeating failures hold us back from evolving into harmony.”

The full-length is named for her late sister, who died of cancer when they were still teenagers. 

“The title is in memoriam, and she definitely did shape me as a human being,” she explains. “But, the record is not about her. It’s about me. I’m pretty candid about myself and who I am and what I believe. Which is why I needed to do it on my own.”
