Tedeschi truck band continued the deployment of its audiovisual epic I am the moon Friday with the release of I am the moon: Episode III. The fall. The third album of the monumental four-album project dropped three days after the band’s accompanying film premiered and on the same night they kicked off a sold-out two-night tour at Red Rocks Amphitheater Morrison, CO.

Drawing inspiration from the 12th century poem about lovers Layla and Majnun, members of the band Susan Tedeschi, Mike Mattisonand Gabe Dixon took the lead in songwriting for The fall. The album opens with “Somehow”, a laid back groovy track brimming with soulful grit. “None Above,” composed by Mattison and Tedeschi, retains an anthemic grace, and Tedeschi’s “Yes We Will” highlights the songwriter’s blues roots. “Gravity” by Dixon, which was co-written with Olivier Woodhas a flavor of New Orleans, while Mattison’s waltz ballad “Emmaline” offers reflections on deceased friends and loved ones inspired in part by the loss of the longtime keyboardist Kofi Burbridgedied in 2019. “Take Me As I Am” crowns the album with a slow, poignant plea for acceptance.

In an industry that constantly questions the value of albums, I am the Moon testifies to the artistic vision of Tedeschi Trucks Band and proves that ambitious projects can still bear fruit in a world dominated by streaming.
