Phish keyboardist Paige McConnell has just released a new single for Vida Blue’s new album titled Crossing Lines. The album comes out September 20th via McConell’s Keyed Records. The new album will feature 8 tracks with “Analog Delay” available today(listen below). Vida Blue first performed together at the Roseland Ballroom in New York, NY on December 31st, 2001 under the lineup of Paige McConnell, Oteil Burbridge and Russel Batiste. The group has put out one album in the past entitled The Illustrated Band released back in 2013.
In a Reddit discussion that took place earlier this year, Oteil Burbridge shared:
“We just recently went into Criteria Studio in Miami. It was really great to get the old band back together, complete with Adam Zimmon and the Spam Allstars,” Oteil responded. “I remember one time we were out on the road together and Page said to me ‘Oteil, you realize this is only the second band I’ve been in in my entire life?’ It really blew my mind to think of how many bands I had played in before I had any kind of success career-wise and Page shot straight to the top in the first band he ever joined,” Burbridge shared about the Phish keyboardist. “It still blows my mind. We had an amazing time playing in the studio. I’m not sure when Page plans on putting the recording out or if there are any plans to tour, but I’m sure we’ll all find out something soon!”
