The Mavericks - Moon & Stars

The Mavericks - Moon & Stars



“The Mavericks are capable of doing everything from rock & roll to Tex-Mex to jazz & soul…a breathtaking collective that can do anything – everything, really – better than the rest. …The big band sound of the … wildly eclectic group …is an earthy but globetrotting place...[It’s impossible] not to get up and dance.” – Rolling Stone

Miami formed and long-time Nashville based, genre-bending Americana icons The Mavericks have announced their 13th studio album Moon & Stars”, out May 17 via Thirty Tigers. It marks their first new music release since 2020’s groundbreaking and chart topping “En Espanol” project, and their first return to a full English language release since their acclaimed “Brand New Day”  album in 2017.

Already known for their distinctive and eclectic Americana / Roots fusion of Alternative & Outlaw Country, Rock, Blues, R&B  and Tejano/Tex-Mex influences, The Mavericks quite appropriately recorded the tracks of “Moon & Stars” across the country in Blackbird Studio (Nashville, Tennessee), Frogville Studios (Santa Fe, New Mexico) and Dockside Studio (Maurice, Louisiana). The result is a long-awaited album that instantly invokes both a timeless feel of a classic Mavericks release that will fit seamlessly among their most revered career work, while once again challenging genre conventions and pushing the boundaries of their melting pot sound ever forward.

Additional special featured guests on the album include  Maggie Rose, Nicole Atkins, and the band’s own ‘Fantastic Five’ member Max Abrams. Song co-writers with THE MAVERICKS also include Bernie Taupin, Sam Hollander, Wally Wilson, and more
