Gregg Allman’s final studio album, Southern Blood, will be released September 8, but as of yesterday, one song had already been released online.
Before his death in May, Allman spent his last years working on the project, collaborating on it with his friend and manager Michael Lehman, and producer Don Was. Was stated: “The man that his fans saw performing onstage was the essential Gregg Allman. He was whole and truly satisfied when he was up there playing music.”
Southern Blood is a farewell to the beloved rock icon featuring the first new recording from Allman since 2011’s Low Country Blues. For his final album, Allman recorded songs written by Bob Dylan, Jackson Brown, Jerry Garcia, and others.
“My Only True Friend” is now streaming online — and the album is already available for pre-orders.
Enjoy this classic as we honor Gregg and celebrate his new album. Lindsey
