Legendary New Orleans funk bassist George Porter Jr. and his Runnin’ Pardners have released Crying For Hope, their first full-length album in a decade, via Controlled Substance Sound Labs and Color Red.

Recorded remotely during quarantine, the twelve-track album features a mix of unreleased Pardners tunes as well as an array of new cuts inspired by the country’s jarring moment of collective social justice reckoning last summer. As a press release notes, Crying For Hope serves as a “snapshot of the modern state of funk—and a testament to its place in the greater social conversation—from one of the most prolific and influential bassists of a generation.”
