"Originally released in April 2015, ‘Sound & Color’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album also went Top 10 in Australia, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK, where it is certified Silver with over 84,000 sales.
The single ‘Don’t Wanna Fight’ took honours in the Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song categories. Alabama Shakes were also nominated for Best International Group at the 2016 BRIT Awards
Alabama Shakes co-produced the album alongside Blake Mills (Bob Dylan, Perfume Genius). Mainly recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios, ‘Sound & Color’ also found the band joining forces with engineer / mixer Shawn Everett (Beck, The War on Drugs, Kacey Musgraves). As they brought the album’s finely detailed tracks to life, Alabama Shakes let their most playful impulses run free."
