Truth & Soul Records released the new Lee Fields & The Expressions single “You’re The Kind of Girl” today (produced by the folk who brought us Aloe Blacc's 'I Need A Dollar'). It's the first single from the upcoming album 'Faithful Man' (12th March) and, over forty years into his career, has helped introduce the soul vet to new fans. The label has also launched a video series featuring new and exclusive interview footage with Fields. Part One is available now on the Truth & Soul Records Vimeo page. Look for a new installment to premiere every Tuesday leading up to the release of 'Faithful Man'.

'Faithful Man' is Fields’ follow-up to the well-received 2009 album 'My World', and his second album for Truth & Soul. The songs on the album feature a modern take on a vintage sound, telling tales of love, heartbreak and blues in a time-honored way. Born and raised in the small town of Wilson, North Carolina, Fields spent his teenage years singing in church and listening to the classic sound of ’60s Memphis. By the late sixties, Lee was touring with the bands who would lay the foundation for funk music, including Kool and the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, and Little Royal. And back in the 1970s, Fields was nicknamed Little JB for his similarity to James Brown. These days, he’s got a sound that’s all his own.
