Alynda Segarra and the Special Men

Don't Tell Me That It's Over

"Don't Tell Me That It's Over", the new single from Alynda Segarra and The Special Men (of Hurray For The Riff Raff) is available on a limited edition 45 rpm vinyl.

Released by Special Man Industries, it was written by Special Man mastermind King James who recruited Alynda Segarra - taking cues from forefathers such as Cosimo Matassa, the Meters, Allen Toussaint and others, King James (Jimmy Horn) has created an in-house band for the label. He writes and produces the material while relying on Goat (Steel Pulse, the Neville Brothers) for engineering assistance. Special Man Industries' intention is to "develop, produce, and distribute New Orleans' finest sound recordings for the world's most discerning listeners". With 2017's Act Like You Know from King James and The Special Men serving as the inaugural release, a new 7" from Louis Michot of Lost Bayou Ramblers will arrive later this year as will one from Leyla McCalla.
