Ani DiFranco Which Side Are You On?
Release Date: January 17, 2012
Label: Righteous Babe
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Ani DiFranco's newest release, Which Side Are You On?, features 11 new songs alongside a radically reworked rendition of the classic title song, famously popularized by Pete Seeger nearly five decades ago, but no less relevant today.
Backing DiFranco is a remarkably diverse line-up of stellar musicians, including members of her own touring band as well as such guest players as Ivan and Cyril Neville (of New Orleans' first family of funk and R&B, the Neville Brothers), avant-saxophonist Skerik (Pearl Jam, R.E.M., Bonnie Raitt, the Meters), acclaimed singer/songwriter Anaïs Mitchell, guitarist Adam Levy (Norah Jones, Tracy Chapman, Amos Lee), and a host of New Orleans-based horn players known for their work in such outfits as Galactic, Bonerama, and the Rebirth Brass Band.
