"We've been working on it for I don't know, a year and a half? There's a lot of really great songs," Susan Tedeschi said. 

Most of the songs on the album were written by Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, and vocalist Mike Mattison, but Tedeschi said the whole band played a part in the record.

As a world-renowned live act, Tedeschi Trucks Band takes a different approach to their time in the studio. "We write a lot in the studio, this band formed in that studio so everyone's pretty comfortable in there," Trucks said. 

"It's a different energy than playing live, but it's nice to capture tunes in its first conception of something," he added.
