Chart-topping rock band, The Revivalists, are raising spirits with the release of their live studio video for “You and I (Made In Muscle Shoals).” The fan-favorite song was re-imagined for the band’s recent Made In Muscle Shoals EP after first appearing on Take Good Care (Loma Vista Recordings) – a treat for fans who have been hearing the song live for years.
Recorded and filmed at the legendary FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the new version of “You and I” propels front man David Shaw’s incredible, instantly recognizable vocals forward as the band create a new groovy take on the track. “We had no preconceived notion about how we wanted the songs to change before going into FAME Studios. We really wanted the vibe of the room to guide us to that place. ‘You and I’ really took its shape once Zack landed on that new riff you hear in the beginning,” shares Shaw.
