Posthumous release from the New Orleans legend. Throughout his six-decade long career, Dr. John embodied a near-mythic multitude of musical identities: Global Ambassador of New Orleans Funk, Jazz, and R&B, visionary bluesman, rock n’ roll innovator, and a massively revered high priest of psychedelic voodoo. Things Happen That Way, his final studio album, adds another dimension to his musicality: a lifelong affinity for Country & Western. It’s a glorious farewell from one of the most essential figures in music history.
