Night Beats - That's All You Got
‘That’s All You Got’ is the latest release from Texas-born outfit Night Beats and a collaboration between founding member Danny Lee Blackwell and Robert Levon Been of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. With a bunch of new material in the works, ‘That’s All You Got’ is Night Beats’ first outing since they recently announced their signing to London-based label Fuzz Club.
A slice of soulful, psychedelic R&B, the ‘That’s All You Got’ 7” is due for release December 4th and includes the B-side ‘Never Look Back’, which also features BRMC’s Levon Been. Talking about the single, Night Beats’ Danny Lee says: “Times like these make it seem like the world is tryna keep you down. We'll always have corrupt politicians and two faced crooks trying to control our minds, but there are two things that are also eternal in this world: Rhythm and Blues. 'That’s All You Got' is a reminder that at the end of the day, we’ll always have the SOUL.”
Night Beats and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have played and toured together on multiple occasions and Levon Been can be heard co-producing and performing on the Night Beats’ 2016 LP ‘Who Sold My Generation’ (Heavenly Recordings). Unlike these previous collaborations, however, ‘That’s All You Got’ was co-written by the pair and the result is a pure, more authentic collaboration between two of the finest purveyors of contemporary rock’n’roll.
Danny Lee reflects: “I was honored to work with Robert, one of the greatest writers I've had the pleasure of calling a friend. Hopefully this song can bring light to the darkness surrounding all of us.”
