Little Steven And The Disciples Of Soul Summer Of Sorcery 180g Vinyl 2LP
Features an exclusive introduction written by Steven Van Zandt
Summer of Sorcery is the 2019 release by Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul. "I created a collection of fictional movie scenes that feel like summer. I'm proud of it," says Steven Van Zandt, about the new record.
Rolling Stone premiered the record's first track, the jet-fueled "Superfly Terraplane."
Summer Of Sorcery — which arrives just two years after Little Steven's acclaimed 2017's solo return, Soulfire, and its 2018 live follow-up, Soulfire Live! - was written, arranged, and produced by Van Zandt at his own Renegade Studios in New York City; the album was co-produced and recorded by Grammy Award-winner Geoff Sanoff and co-produced by Disciples of Soul musical director and guitarist Marc Ribler.
The album was mixed and mastered respectively by Van Zandt's career-long collaborators and friends Bob Clearmountain (Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Who, Bryan Adams), and Bob Ludwig (Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, The Band, Sly and the Family Stone). The album — which features an exclusive introduction written by Van Zandt — is adorned with Frank Frazetta-inspired cover art by Van Zandt's longtime art director, Louis Arzonico.
"My first five albums in the ‘80s were both very personal, and very political," explains Little Steven aka Steven Van Zandt. "I wanted the new material to be more fictionalized. The way records were when I grew up. Before it was an artform. The concept was capturing and communicating that first rush of summer. The electricity of that feeling of unlimited possibilities. Of falling in love with the world for the first time. Obviously, there are occasional personal references, and a bit of what's going on socially scattered throughout, but I achieved what I set out to do."
