Tedeschi Trucks Band have released another video from the upcoming Layla Revisited (Live at Lockn’), their full album cover of Derek & The Dominos' classic Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs. 

The latest release - Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad was released in May - is their cover of Tell The Truth, a song originally recorded in London in 1970 during the sessions for George Harrison's classic triple album All Things Must Pass. Produced by Phil Spector, it was released as the first Derek & The Dominos single, but became an instant collectors item after the band, dissatisfied with their performance, demanded that it be withdrawn from sale.

Tell The Truth was then re-recorded for Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs, an album released on November 9, 1970, the day Susan Tedeschi was born.

Layla Revisited (Live at Lockn’) was recorded on August 24, 2019 at the Lockin' Festival in Arrington, VA, during the second of two sets performed by the band, who were joined onstage for the set by Phish mainman Trey Anastasio and guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, who's previously collaborated on several albums with Derek & The Dominos man Eric Clapton.

The album, which ends with a studio version of Thorn Tree In The Garden recorded by Trucks and Tedeschi, will be released on CD, triple vinyl, and as high-quality 24-bit, 192kHz digital files. It's released on July 16, and is available to pre-order now.
