The new Night Beats single: ‘That’s All You Got’ is a slice of soulful, psychedelic R&B off the new 7″ featuring two tracks with BRMC’s Robert Levon Been!, Night Beats’ Danny Lee says: “Times like these make it seem like the world is trying 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. I was honoured 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.”

Looking forward to what’s next from Night Beats! Out December 4th on Fuzz Club Records. North American customers can grab the 7″ in our online store:

The 7″ edition above is limited to 300, of which we only have 100.

‘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’. 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 honoured 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.

On May 7th 2021, Night Beats – the Texas-born brainchild of Danny Lee Blackwell – will release their fifth full-length, ‘Outlaw R&B’, via Fuzz Club Records. The album arrives following the 2019 ‘Myth of A Man’ LP (produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and released by Heavenly Recordings) as well as last year’s ‘That’s All You Got’ 7” vinyl. Made during the height of the California wildfires (where Blackwell currently resides), rioting in the streets and a nation in lockdown, the raucous technicolour rock’n’roll of ‘Outlaw R&B’ is a call to rejoice in some sorely needed post-apocalyptic hedonism.

Blackwell says of the album: “Outlaw R&B is music for the borderless, the free, the outcasts and the forgotten. The outlaw is the runner. Those whose minds aren’t sold by perfect pitch and clean fingernails. Through this medium you can escape the confines of mental feudalism and bask in the euphoric glow of psychedelic R&B.” Where the last Night Beats LP was a distinctly polished and soulful affair, ‘Outlaw R&B’ sees the band return to their natural habitat: riotous, acid-fried rock’n’roll to lose your head to.
