Rock 'n' roll vanguard Steve Miller and The Steve Miller Band have announced a worldwide partnership with Roadrunner/Loud & Proud. SBM's new album, BINGO!, was recorded at George Lucas' studios at Skywalker Ranch and is the band's first studio album in 17 years.
Those who have heard the record indicate that it is comparable to 1968's Sailor. Those are some might big words right there, since that album is considered SMB's masterwork. All SMB fans will have to wait until June to find out how the new album stacks up!
Steve Miller Band is one of the biggest selling recording, touring and catalog artists of all time, having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide throughout its career. SMB's Greatest Hits 74-78 compilation reached the prestigious Diamond Award certification with sales of more than 13 million units.
BINGO! was co-produced by Andy Johns (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Van Halen) and the recordings feature longtime Steve Miller Band member Norton Buffalo, who passed away in 2009. R.I.P.
