Leland Sklar and The Immediate Family Release Self-Titled Album

The Immediate Family AlbumAfter releasing two EPs, The Immediate Family has dropped a full-length self-titled album. The new album was recorded over three days at Jackson Browne’s studio in Los Angeles and includes tracks from the previous releases.

“This iconic supergroup has played together for decades, but never as their own band,” the group’s bio explains. “Known for their long, illustrious careers backing Hall of Fame artists like James Taylor, Keith Richards, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Stevie Nicks and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, guitarists Danny Kortchmar and Waddy Wachtel, drummer Russ Kunkel, and bassist Leland Sklar have come together, along with guitarist Steve Postell, to perform their own songs as The Immediate Family.”

Their new release includes their lead tracks “Can’t Stop Progress” and “Fair Warning” with several more originals. It also has two bonus tracks: live versions of the Danny Kortchmar/Jackson Browne collaboration “Somebody’s Baby” and Warren Zevon’s “Johnny Strikes Up the Band.”

The band will be heading out on a tour in support of the record. Sklar and company will hit California before heading to New England and working their way down to Florida.

The Immediate Family is available on CD and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
