Having recorded and mixed their previous album, The Nashville Session, in one day back in 2016, the New Mastersounds decided to head back to the United States to record their thirteenth studio album. Renewable Energy, then, was recorded during sessions in New Orleans and Denver, and expands on the Leeds outfit's usual heavy funk and boogaloo-inspired formula. That means fine forays into solo-sporting jazz dance business, Bob James style liquid warmth and up-tempo jazz-funk rubbing shoulders with the kind of surging, rush-inducing instrumentals and life-affirming soul songs that the West Yorkshire four-piece have always excelled at delivering.
