Less than a year after independently releasing his self-titled record digitally, Allen Stone remains independent and has announced that the Dave Matthews-helmed ATO Records will be licensing the record for a wider national release. Until now Allen Stone has only been available digitally, but with this deal we’ll finally see a physical release in stores on July 31st, with a vinyl edition on the shelves as well. The wax will come with an additional 12″ that includes two live tracks, “Satisfaction” and “Unaware,” a cover of Tingsek’s “Six Years” and a new recording of live staple “Figure It Out.” The CD and digital versions will also come with “Figure It Out” as a new eleventh track.
It’s been a fast paced 12 months since we first met Stone with visits to Conan, Daryl’s House, and South Africa, and with this news the next twelve aren’t likely to be any less hectic. Around here Allen Stone is already playing the biggest of stages: the Sasquatch Mainstage last month, Capitol Hill Block Party on July 20th, and then opening all three nights of The Dave Matthews Band annual Labor Day stand at the Gorge. The night before Block Party Allen Stone plays LA’s Greek Theater opening for Al Green!
