American psychedelic soul band Black Pumas has a new EP out called the Behind the Electric Deluxe Sessions. The project is an Amazon Original through the platform’s music program. In it, fans will find four tracks which are reimagined versions of the songs “Colors,” “Fire,” and “Know You Better,” along with a cover of the classic Jimmy Webb hit “Wichita Lineman” (originally made famous by Glen Campbell, The Meters, and others).

The EP is also accompanied by a five-and-a-half minute trailer which goes behind the scene of the making of the project. The mini doc features the Grammy Award nominated duo — Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada — explaining the ins and outs of how everything came together. They describe how the EP was supposed to be made elsewhere but they ended up recording everything int heir hometown of Austin, Texas due to the quarantine orders because of the coronavirus.

“We recorded ‘Colors,’ ‘Fire,’ and ‘Know You Better’ live for this Amazon Music session, and those are all tunes that from the time we recorded them for the album to what they’ve become live, have just become this whole other thing,” says Adrian Quesada. “When we recorded the record [Black Pumas] we’d only been working together for a few months. All the touring we did over the last year, the live show has elevated all the songs arrangement-wise, everyone gets to shine a little bit and we don’t get to put that down too often.”

You can listen to the whole project now through Amazon Music and you can watch the mini documentary above.
