Produced by Mark Kibble - a founding member of the legendary a cappella group Take 6 and one of Straight No Chaser's primary influences - the album includes unprecedented collaborations with some of popular music's best and brightest - including Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Dolly Parton, Rob Thomas, Seal, and Jason Mraz - as Straight No Chaser put their distinctive and inimitable spin on songs known and loved the world over.
Straight No Chaser is scheduled for a special appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" on the eve of their album release, Monday, May 6. The following weekend, they will perform on the Mother's Day installment of "Today: Weekend Edition" on Sunday, May 12. To celebrate the album's arrival on release day, Straight No Chaser will perform an exclusive set for fans and contest winners at the Southwest Airlines Porch at Bryant Park on Tuesday, May 7. To conclude the release week, the group has scheduled a series of special release week concerts, kicking off May 9th at the State Theatre in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
UNDER THE INFLUENCE is heralded by the new single, "I Want You Back" featuring Sara Bareilles. A companion video for the inventive take on the Jackson 5 classic - as well audio clips for an array of additional album tracks - are streaming now at the official Straight No Chaser YouTube channel, located at www.youtube.com/sncmusic.
Fans can pre-order UNDER THE INFLUENCE now in a variety of bundles featuring such exclusive extras as an SNC Tour Journal, a refrigerator magnet, and a limited edition 18"x24" screenprinted poster. As if that weren't enough, the album is also being offered as a special Fan Edition, featuring six bonus tracks, an expanded booklet and deluxe packaging not available with the standard CD.
