New York, NY (October 14, 2016) – After close to 47 years of music, Lee Fields, backed by The Expressions and their incomparable soul-sound musicianship, will release Special Night on November 4 via Big Crown RecordsFields is proud to announce the first tour behind the album, which kicks off on release date at the Ray-Ban x Boiler Room Weekender with Kamasi Washington in Lake Harmony, PALater in the month, Fields and his six-piece band will hit the west coast and return to NYC for a headlining show at Irving Plaza on Saturday, January 7 with Big Crown label-mates Lady Wray and Paul & The Tall Trees. Lee Fields & The Expressions are currently on tour in Europe and will return following Irving Plaza. A full list of tour dates can be found on the website with U.S. dates below and more to be added in 2017.
  
Possessing a voice that’s equally raucous and tender, Fields crafts a truly honest, soulful work on Special Night. Lee, as Pitchfork put it, “isn’t indebted specifically to Atlantic or Stax or Philadelphia International or Chess or Fame or Motown so much as it’s indebted to all of them at once.” The title track debuted this summer at Noisey and today, Lee Fields releases album standout “Make The World”, which works both as militaristic funk and a cautionary tale about the health of the planet.

“The world was designed to last indefinitely,” says Fields. “And we’re the only living species on Earth who can alter that process. I’m hoping that song has a chain reaction, helps somebody put into action whatever contribution they can to change what the world is going through.”
