Chart-topping rock band The Revivalists have released a new track “You Said It All (Made In Muscle Shoals)” alongside a live studio video.
Recorded and filmed during the band’s sessions at the iconic FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, “You Said It All”—a favorite in The Revivalists’ live shows—gets a fresh approach informed by the aura of the legendary studio.
“I started writing ‘You Said It All’ during a time in my life when I found the things surrounding me were receding. The song was sparked late at night during an underground Mardi Gras parade and I found myself in a surreal world I didn’t recognize only blocks from my house. The first lines of the song came straight from that experience of being in a place I knew so well but seeing it as an unknown landscape full of danger and possibility,” shares drummer Andrew Campanelli.
“The original demo was built on sounds referencing back to 90s rap but when we arranged the song for The Revivalists it got a more live band treatment. FAME Studios is known for making hits in an era where everything was played live and you can feel it in the room. Recording ‘You Said It All’ there inspired us to bring the same energy we put into our live shows into this version of the song.”
“You Said It All (Made In Muscle Shoals)” is the first release from the band’s Muscle Shoals sessions since their 2020 Made In Muscle Shoals live studio EP, which featured re-imaginings of fan favorites from the band’s last studio album Take Good Care, including No.1 Triple A and Top 5 Alternative hit “All My Friends,” a gorgeous version of their breakout platinum crossover smash “Wish I Knew You,” a cover of the Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody,” new song “Bitter End,” and a mini-documentary that shared the deepest insight yet into the essence of the band.
The accompanying film was set against the backdrop of Muscle Shoals, a location that is steeped in the many classic styles of American music that now informs The Revivalists’ signature sound.
