Brittany Howard will celebrate her two new GRAMMY nominations with a trio of television performances. Tune in tonight to see her perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” She’ll visit “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” on Wednesday, December 4. On Thursday, December 5, Howard will perform on “TODAY Show” in the 8:00 AM hour and also during “3rd Hour TODAY.”
“History Repeats” – from her debut solo album, Jaime – has been nominated in two GRAMMY categories: Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song, bringing her total career nominations to 11. She has won four GRAMMY Awards in her role as lead vocalist/guitarist for the chart-topping band Alabama Shakes. View Howard performing “History Repeats” on “Later…With Jools Holland” HERE.
The New York Times observed, “‘History Repeats,’ the densely layered funk song that opens the album, links personal neuroses – recurring kinds of self-destructive relationships – and societal patterns.” NPR praised the track as “a swirling, punch-drunk and funk rumination on the ways repeated mistakes can hold us back.” Afropunk hailed it as “an instant anthem….and a metaphor for the human condition.”
Jaime, available HERE, was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone, MOJO and Q. “Stay High,” the album’s first single, spent three weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart. Views of the official video, which stars Terry Crews (“Everybody Hates Chris,” The Expendables films, Deadpool 2), have surpassed seven million.
Howard –who has performed everywhere from the Obama White House to the main stage at Lollapalooza, where she sang with Paul McCartney at his invitation – wrapped up her North American headline tour last week with performances at The Fillmore in San Francisco and the Fox Theater in Oakland. She spoke with the San Francisco Examiner about the genesis of Jaime in this feature. Her confirmed 2020 dates include a trio of UK shows and performances at the Highwater and Shaky Knees festivals. Additional dates will be announced soon.
