Next week, Richmond, Virginia-based singer, bandleader and modern soul visionary Matthew E. White will release Fresh Blood, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut Big Inner. Produced by White and Spacebomb partner Trey Pollard and mixed by Pat Dillett (David Byrne, Nile Rodgers), Fresh Blood is now streaming in its entirety via NPR Music's First Listen and through the mobile app TuneIn for the remainder of this week.

For those of you who missed out or couldn't attend his performance earlier this week at BRIC Arts Media House, where he debuted the new album with the help of a 30 piece live band, listen back to a broadcast of the entire show next Tuesday 9pm EST on WFUV.  In addition, Matthew E. White hits the road this month for a series of headlining US dates including SXSW.

Fresh Blood is available on CD, vinyl and digitally. There is also a special edition of the album, which is a double LP gatefold heavyweight vinyl (WIGLP309X) containing a bonus LP titled Fresh Blood: No Skin – a full length minimalist mix of the entire album. You can pre-order Fresh Blood via Domino Mart and iTunes.
