Product Overview

It's been three years since Dave Matthews Band has released a new studio recording-and the new album, Stand Up, has 14 new songs. So, to describe it as "highly anticipated" would be a gross understatement. To put things into perspective, over the last decade, DMB has remained the unquestioned #1 touring band in America, selling more than 10 million tickets during that time.

Over that same period, DMB has sold over 26 million CDs and DVDs in the U.S. alone. Dave Matthews Band's rabid and extremely active fan base numbers in the millions.

For this album DMB has stepped out of the box and tapped Mark Batson to co-produce. Batson is best known for his work with Eminem, Seal, Beyonce, India.Arie and 50 Cent. The resulting collaboration has produced a startling freshness to DMB's sound.

Album Notes and Credits
Dave Matthews Band: Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar, piano); Carter Beauford (vocals, drums, percussion); Boyd Tinsley (violin, electric violin); LeRoi Moore (soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone); Stefan Lessard (bass guitar).
Additional personnel: Mark Batson (vocals, piano, Clavinet, organ, Wurlitzer organ, Mellotron, keyboards, Moog synthesizer, percussion); Butch Taylor (piano, Fender Rhodes piano, Wurlitzer piano, organ, keyboards, background vocals); Lee Grove (percussion).
When the members of the Dave Matthews Band commenced recording STAND UP, they did so with the express intent of creating an album markedly different from their past efforts. To this end, they hired R&B/hip-hop producer Mark Batson (Eminem, India Arie) and started down a path of experimentation that re-defined the group's creative process.
Whether on the loop-like electric mandolin lines on "American Baby," the spooky, slowed-down vocal on "Stand Up (For It)," or the psychedelic echo effect on the chorus of "Everybody Wake Up (Our Finest Hour Arrives)," artistic freedom is in the air here, and the musicians sound like they're having the time of their lives. Even Matthews's idiosyncratic vocals are looser and friendlier, and his lyrics seem more in sync with the music. In fact, the album's overall sense of liberation and quirkiness lends it a sound reminiscent of Mitchell Froom's work on Los Lobos' landmark KIKO. Of course, longtime fans of the Dave Matthews Band will find all of their favorite elements here, including syncopated, world-music-inspired grooves, jaw-dropping drum chops, a few extended jams, and the dark, immediately identifiable singing of Matthews himself.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (pp.73-74) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "[T]here's lots of enlightened riff-rock and splashes of color....The band's singular groove is as self-sustaining as ever..."
Entertainment Weekly (No. 819, p.84) - "[T]he disc hopscotches among a dizzying array of sounds and approaches..." - Grade: A-
Mojo (Publisher) (p.119) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[N]ow they're folk-funk/hardcore-gospel! The fundamental is the intimacy gathered around Matthews' new frontporch growl."
