    Daptone Records will drop Cold World by Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens on July 29.

    We have an early taste for you.

    But first...the intel.

    In the six years since the release of their last full-length record, Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens have toured extensively, playing main stages at some of the most prestigious festivals in the world. Though seasoned veterans, these last years of touring played a crucial role in the creation of the songs that would become the forthcoming album Cold World.

    Though the music is most unapologetically gospel, most of the lyrics on the record would fall under what could be called "message songs." That is, music containing uplifting spiritual messages, reminiscent of the more inspirational moments of The Staple Singers or Curtis Mayfield.

    Cold World Track Listing:

    Sinner
    Movin'
    Heaven Is Mine
    Bound for the Promised Land
    It's a Cold, Cold World
    I Don't Know
    Get Up, Child
    One Day
    I Earned Mine
    Humble Me
    Thank You Lord
    Everybody Knows (River Song)

    Listen to "Sinner" below.



    Are you a "Sinner?" Sinning is so much more fun!
