Black Pumas Announce Deluxe Edition of Their Self-Titled Debut Album

Black Pumas, the Austin duo of frontman/songwriter Eric Burton and producer/guitarist Adrian Quesada, will release a deluxe version of their breakout self-titled debut album on August 28 digitally and October 9 physically.

Since its release in 2019, Black Pumas has sold 155K+ album equivalents worldwide, spawned the massive hit single "Colors" - which hit #1 at AAA Radio and has been streamed over 60 million times - and seen the band nominated for Best New Artist at the 2020 Grammy Awards. The new 2-LP deluxe edition will feature new artwork and a gatefold with unpublished in-studio and live photographs, as well as a bonus 7-inch featuring three new unreleased originals; three live in-studio versions ("Colors," "Oct 33," "Confines"); a live version of "Know You Better" recorded at C-Boys Heart & Soul, the Austin club where the band first made a name for itself; and covers of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby," Death's "Politicians in My Eyes," Bobby "Blue" Bland's "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City," and Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," a cover they premiered live on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last month. Black Pumas (Deluxe Edition) is available for pre-order HERE.

Black Pumas' official live session of "Colors" is a huge viral hit on YouTube, with nearly 27 million views, and today they share a new video of the live version of "Confines" that appears on the deluxe album, an incredible rendition that features a string quartet. The Fader premiered the video today, with Burton saying of the song, "It is a reminder to remain equanimous in life during trials and tribulations while also not being afraid to have dreams."
