ABOUT BLACK PUMAS

When Black Pumas made their self-titled debut in 2019, the Austin-bred duo set off a reaction almost as combustible and rapturous as their music itself. Along with earning a career total of seven Grammy Award nominations (including Album Of The Year) and winning praise from leading outlets like Pitchfork and Rolling Stone, singer/songwriter Eric Burton and guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada achieved massive success as a live act, touring large  theaters all over Europe and North and South America and delivering a transcendent show Burton aptly refers to as “electric church.” As they set to work on their highly awaited sophomore album, the band broadened their palette to include a dazzling expanse of musical forms: heavenly hybrids of soul and symphonic pop, mind-bending excursions into jazz-funk and psychedelia, starry-eyed love songs that feel dropped down from the cosmos. Wilder, weirder, more extravagantly composed than its predecessor, Chronicles of a Diamond arrives as the fullest expression yet of Black Pumas’ frenetic creativity and limitless vision. This album too harnesses the lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry between self-taught musician Burton, who got his start busking on beaches and subway platforms in his native Los Angeles, and Grammy Award winner Quesada, whose background includes playing in Latin-funk orchestra Grupo Fantasma and accompanying legendary artists like Prince. Produced by Quesada and primarily mixed by six-time Grammy Award-winner Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs), the 10-song LP finds Burton taking the role of co-producer and infusing his free-spirited musicality into every track. Although Black Pumas made much of the album at Quesada’s own Electric Deluxe Recorders in Austin, Chronicles of a Diamond also came to life in such far-flung cities as Amsterdam, Mexico City and San Francisco, with their longtime band joining in to shape the album’s explosive yet artfully crafted sound.
