The genre-defying Mavericks are declaring their independence and stepping out on their own with Brand New Day, the first studio album released on Mono Mundo Recordings, the label they founded in 2016. Brand New Day is the follow-up to the widely praised albums Mono (2015) and In Time (2013).
Flashing the same exhilarating, beyond-category style that has defined the Mavericks, the new album introduces a collection of taut, energetic, economical songs sure to be embraced by both original fans of their top-10 albums and hit singles of the '90s and a new generation of listeners who have joined the party since their triumphant 2012 reunion. It is the mature and timely work of an exciting and underestimated American band that has embraced its own destiny.
Brand New Day flexes the category-defying approach that has been a unique hallmark of the Mavericks' sound since the band's top-20 hits on the country charts. The album's 10 songs seamlessly merge strains of Tex-Mex, Cuban bolero, R&B, blues, country, and rock 'n' roll.
"I came up with a new category called 'non-gen'," drummer Paul Deakin says with a laugh. "We don't seem to operate with many preconceived parameters. Raul [Malo]'s writing, which in my opinion... keeps getting better every time we go back in the studio, doesn't limit us to any one format. It's a band of audiophiles. Honestly, before we go on stage and after we get off stage, we're listening to music from every imaginal genre. I think that appreciation of all music naturally comes through when we make records."
