Trombone shorts released the second preview of their highly anticipated new studio album, Survey, released April 29 on Blue Note Records.

For his first album in five years, the New Orleans-born and raised musical icon and ambassador harnesses the raw power and uplifting grooves of his legendary gigs across ten tracks recorded in his own Buckjump studio with producer Chris Seefried (Fitz and temper tantrums, Andra Day).
