Bobby McFerrin - spirityouall

Bobby McFerrin surprises us again, bringing it all back home with his new album, spirityouall.
Now Bobby invites us to sit on the stoop awhile and listen as he throws some unexpected new
ingredients into the melting pot and reinvents Americana. He invites us back to the great folk
tradition of lifting our voices to sing together through life's trials and triumphs.

spirityouall features beloved familiar tunes like "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands" and
"Every Time I Feel The Spirit" alongside original songs which explore Bobby's everyday search
for grace, wisdom, and freedom. The new material ranges from a celebratory hoedown (“Rest”)
to a polemic anthem (“Woe”), to a down and dirty blues setting of Psalm 25:15. This project
embraces Bobby's folk, rock, and blues influences without abandoning his fearless
improvisational approach or his never-ending exploration of the human voice. He moves
seamlessly between lyrics and wordless lines, trading phrases with his band, inviting the
audience to sing along. Bobby loves to sing this music, and it shows: spirityouall raises the roof
with joyful grooves.
