Tal Wilkenfeld Releases First Track from Upcoming Album

Tal Wilkenfeld

Today is a good day. Tal Wilkenfeld has released the official version of her song, “Under The Sun,” from her upcoming album of the same name. The bassist, who has worked with everyone from Jeff Beck to Herbie Hancock, has been performing the song live for several years since she took up a more singer/songwriter role.

Wilkenfeld debuted it while touring as an opening act for The Who. Guitarist Pete Townshend said, ”’Under the Sun’ is one of the best songs I’ve heard in years. It’s mesmeric, and I just love the sheer poetry of it all. The lyrics are spiritual and searching. A jewel, truly.”

The song has gorgeous vocals and a strongly bass-driven groove. Wilkenfeld also dishes out a brief yet beautiful solo at the 4:36 mark. Listen here:

Wilkenfeld’s new album is scheduled to be released in Spring 2019. The title track is available now as a single via Amazon, iTunes, and streaming services.
