Praised As “America’s greatest live dance band & one of the best touring acts of our era,”
THE MAVERICKS Have Already Begun Previewing Select New Album Tracks In Their Current Live Shows, With Upcoming Highlights Including The Band’s April/May Return To Europe.

“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 details today on their highly anticipated new album Moon & Stars”.  Set for release on May 17th via the band’s own Mono Mundo Recordings imprint in conjunction with Thirty Tigers, the award winning group’s 13th studio album marks their first new music release since 2020’s ground-breaking 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.
 

“This record has been a journey of reflection, introspection, patience, learning and evolving. Some of these songs were written years ago, but they weren’t ready. Or maybe we weren’t. We are now…”
– THE MAVERICKS via Instagram

 
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.


 
First single and title track “Moon & Stars (with Sierra Ferrell)” will be released this Friday, March 1st (with advance press copies available by request) and simultaneously launch the album’s Pre-Save availability across all major DSPs, and Pre-Orders for physical CDs and vinyl. Additional special featured guests on the album will 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.
 
Watch for additional singles from “Moon & Stars” to be released in late March and April, with THE MAVERICKS already giving live previews of select songs in their ongoing live touring and the band’s April/May tour throughout Europe – with many more dates to follow throughout the year (see all announced dates below).
 
“The Mavericks do what precious few of their contemporaries can… A band conversant in country, jazz, pop and Latin-flavored rhythms, finely honed by its relentless dedication to touring… Raul Malo and his bandmates had just spent about 80 minutes delivering one of their trademark performances packed with fire, feeling and funkiness… Throughout, the Mavericks were reliably kinetic and locked tighter than a bank vault… [and] Malo’s luscious voice wrapped around bilingual lyrics, a riveting anchor amid the musical maelstrom…and the ecstatic howl from the crowd crystallized the night in a single word, repeated at high volume: “More! More! MORE!” …The only true disappointment about any Mavericks gig is that it has to end at some point. After all, if you can sustain such pleasure indefinitely, why stop?

RAUL MALO – TOUR DATES
 
“Listening to Raul Malo sing transcends the aural experience. The leader of the Mavericks and a genre-bending solo artist, Malo possesses a voice that vibrates through a listener’s entire core — to say nothing of what it does on an emotional level. Equal parts Orbison and Pavarotti, Malo makes a case for himself as the greatest singer working in roots music – Rolling Stone
