About the Album

Few bands have a reputation for making music as consistently honest, organic and daring as Gov’t Mule. Now the enduring group fronted by visionary singer-guitarist Warren Haynes returns with their first album in four years — their Blue Note Records debut Shout!, a breath-taking, exploratory double-disc set released on September 17th.

Disc 1 is pure Gov’t Mule and puts a spotlight on the songs and the way that the band interprets them, hinging on the unique chemistry that they’ve developed over the years.

Shout!’s second disc shines a beam on a guest list of famed interpreters that includes Glenn Hughes, Myles Kennedy, Steve Winwood, Ben Harper, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Toots Hibbert, Jim James, Dave Matthews, Grace Potter and Ty Taylor, who each delivered an alternate vocal performance of one of the first disc’s new Gov’t Mule tunes.


Here’s how Blue Note Records president Don Was, who’s also a Grammy winning producer and performer, sums up Gov’t Mule’s place in contemporary music: “The Mule holds a unique and lofty berth. They have roots that run real deep — drawing from the entire history of rock ‘n’ roll going all the way back to Robert Johnson and the Delta. Yet, despite their mastery of past idioms, they have managed to rearrange those elements into a whole new thing. So while the music they make is quite contemporary, I dare say they have deeper roots than other bands that are creating new music.

According to the Blue Note manifesto written by our founder Alfred Lion back in 1939, our label is dedicated to the recording of ‘authentic music.’ I don’t know how much more authentic you can be than Gov’t Mule! It’s an honor to release their records on the Blue Note label. On this album, they’ve elevated their songwriting, playing and production values to a whole new plateau. It’s gonna blow people’s minds!”

Gov’t Mule is Warren Haynes, co-founder and drummer Matt Abts, multi-instrumentalist Danny Louis and bassist Jorgen Carlsson. Parallel to his nearly two decades in the Mule, Haynes has been the six-string mainstay and a vocalist for the Allman Brothers Band and the Dead, and performed or recorded with a diverse array of other artists.
