Lee Fields Announces New Album ‘Sentimental Fool’, Releases New Song

    Legendary soul singer Lee Fields has announced a new album titled Sentimental Fool. The follow-up to 2019’s It Rains Love comes out October 28 via Daptone, his first LP for the label. Check out the Andrew Anderson-directed video for its title track below, along with the album cover and tracklist.

    Sentimental Fool was produced by Daptone Records founder Bosco Mann (aka Gabriel Roth). “I wanted to cut a different kind of record and really give Lee room to sing,” Mann explained in a statement. “We took our time and got painfully deep into every one of these tunes, stripping them down to pure feeling – no effort spared, no empty gestures remaining. Lee might be the greatest singer alive and I don’t think he’s ever sung better than on these sessions.”

    “With Gabe’s efforts I feel like this album depicts me as the full character that I am. I’m all about emotions,” Fields added. “This album allowed me to show what I’m capable of doing. Not to say that my vocal ability goes beyond others, but I’m able to figure out the math to get the feeling you’re looking for. I’m not trying to outdo any singer, but I can interpret the feeling. I can make someone cry if I want to. It’s always the challenge of trying to make something deeper. On this record I go deeper than I’ve ever gone.”
