The Blind Boys of Alabama Team Up with Govinda for First Electronic Track

August 07, 2014

Govinda, aka Austin-based producer/composer Shane Madden, enlisted the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama to help him out with his new track, "Don't Worry." The unlikely collaboration, which you can check out below, is the Blind Boys first foray into the world of electronic music.

"“I’ve always enjoyed combining my style of world bass music with a variety of others like indie rock and soul so when my management approached me with the idea of working with 5 time Grammy Award winning, Blind Boys of Alabama, I was definitely honored and intrigued," says Madden. "These guys roots run so deep, and I knew it was their first electronic effort, so it was very important to me to attempt to convey a lot of emotion in this one track. It took me a while to find balance in all of it and hope everyone feels a little piece of everything that went it to producing the track.”
