I Am The Moon: IV. Farewell is a new collection of songs from Tedeschi Trucks Band, the ensemble’s final entry in the four-part I Am The Moon album series, a project that began earlier this year.

Released today, Aug. 26, it was recently previewed with a heartfelt video for “Soul Sweet Song,” a loving homage to the group’s late keyboardist, Kofi Burbridge, who passed away in 2019.

Tedeschi Trucks Band stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week for some performances:

Esteemed music writer David Fricke is quoted in a news release as having this to say of the new collection, in the album notes:

“Farewell – the final record in the groundbreaking studio release by Tedeschi Trucks Band, I Am The Moon – concludes a remarkable adventure and new beginning for the group, now in its 12th year as America’s premier rock & roll big band: four distinct and, at the same time, deeply connected albums with a total of 24 original songs capturing the power of devotion in a time of crisis and separation, with a renewed energy in collective songwriting and performance. Opening with the lusty confrontation of “Last Night In The Rain” and ending with the rousing benediction “Another Day,” Farewell is “a wish of well-being at parting,” as one dictionary defines that word – with more road and love ahead.”

Susan Tedeschi: Guitar and Vocals

Gabe Dixon: Keys and Vocals
Brandon Boone: Bass Guitar
Tyler Greenwell: Drums and Percussion
