Grammy-nominated duo The Secret Sisters’ powerful new song, “All The Ways,” featuring Ray LaMontagne, is debuting today (listen/share HERE). Accompanying the release, the song’s official music video is also out now, which was directed by The Frame Theory’s Brandon M. Ward and features actor Linds Edwards (The Hunger Games, etc). Watch/share HERE.

Written by the duo, Laura Rogers and Lydia Slagle, “All The Ways” marks a full circle moment for The Secret Sisters and LaMontagne, as he was the first person to ever invite them on tour over a decade ago. Since then, they’ve formed a close bond and have continued to perform together throughout the past several years, both in the United States and Europe.

Of the track, the sisters reflect, “When we wrote this song, we didn’t know our fifth album would be partially recorded in our hometown area, at FAME studios. But, perhaps subconsciously, we were channeling the legendary soul music that was captured just a few miles from our stomping grounds at the same studio many decades ago. This is a song that drinks from the well of Muscle Shoals. We were humbled and ecstatic to feature our longtime friend and inspiration, Ray LaMontagne, on this track.”

Additionally, LaMontagne shares, “I keep myself to myself. I don’t leave the house much. I keep my hands busy so my mind stays clear. I try to limit my activities to only those that feed my soul. I don’t answer the phone if I don’t have anything to say. But when The Secret Sisters ask if I might lend my voice to a new song they’ve written, I drop everything. I listen. And I sing. Their new album is gorgeous, I love it. I love them. And I am honored to be a very small part of that beautiful thing they are putting into the world.”

“All The Ways” is the second song unveiled from The Secret Sisters’ anticipated new album, Mind, Man, Medicine, which will be released March 29 via New West Records (pre-order/pre-save here). Produced by The Secret Sisters, John Paul White and Ben Tanner (St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Lera Lynn), and recorded mainly at Muscle Shoals’ historic FAME Studios, Mind, Man, Medicine provides an intimate look into the lives of Laura and Lydia these last few years. Across these 11 tracks, including previously released song, “Same Water,” the sisters gracefully detail where they are now—a place of peace and calm—and the personal growth and experiences that led them there.

Reflecting on the project, the sisters share, “Our fifth chapter is the one where we seek, savor, and settle. The muse found us in the depths of raising children, nurturing relationships, surviving a world-changing virus, bidding farewell, shifting our mindsets and discovering a sense of peace heretofore unseen. Our third decade of life has proven to be one of routine, rest, and realization, and these songs are about the lessons we’ve learned. We’ve learned to be space-holders and defenders of the people we hold close. We’ve learned from deep, steady love in various forms. We’ve learned to let go of people and perceptions and priorities that just didn’t make the cut as we weighed what is right and important and worth keeping. We’ve learned how all the things we’ve always treasured continue to withstand the pressure of time. If you notice an upward trend to the mood and emotions, you’re on target-we have found calm waters, for now.”

In addition to the sisters, Tanner (piano, synthesizers, organs, Wurlitzer) and White (acoustic guitar), the record also features Larry Campbell (electric guitar, fiddle), Zac Cockrell (bass), Jeremy Gibson (drums), Ken Lewis (percussion), Parker McAnnally (bass, dulcimer), Austin Motlow (synthesizer, electric guitar) and KS Rhoads (piano) as well as FAME’s Studio Orchestra on “I Needed You.”

In celebration of the new music, The Secret Sisters will perform select headline shows this spring including stops at Austin’s 04 Center, Dallas’ Kessler Theater, Houston’s Heights Theater, Nashville’s Basement East, Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music and Minneapolis’ Parkway Theater among others.
