Joanne Shaw Taylor goes behind the scenes

Joanne Shaw Taylor has premiered a video that goes behind the scenes of fourth album The Dirty Truth.

It’s released on September 22 via her own label Axehouse Music, and sees her reunited with producer Jim Gaines, who worked on her 2009 debut White Sugar.

Taylor says: ““I wanted to go back into the studio in Memphis with Jim to retain the same vibe that we captured on the first album. The new one is a combination of rock and blues. It’s an exciting collaboration – and hopefully my fans will love the more stripped-down sound.”

The Dirty Truth will be available as a signed digipak, standard CD, limited-edition blue vinyl, black vinyl. Variants of the digipak and vinyl editions come with a signed A2 art print.
