Brittany Howard, the front woman of Grammy-award winning rock band Alabama Shakes, has started a side project. The new band is Bermuda Triangle, a mini Americana supergroup featuring singer-songwriters Becca Mancari and Jesse Lafser, and they’ve just released their first song: a fresh version of Lafser’s song “Rosey.”

This isn’t the first time Howard has started a new band in addition to her mainstay Alabama Shakes. Back in 2015 she released a gritty rock record with the excellently named Thunderbitch, made up of fellow Nashville musicians from bands Fly Golden Eagle and Clear Plastic Masks. The woman is always working; she even popped up on a John Legend song last year.

Bermuda Triangle already sounds like a far cry from Thunderbitch and the bluesy, contemporary rock of Alabama Shakes. Now, the trio is playing a short tour in the South this October, but no word yet on when we can expect a full album.

Brittany Howard is in Nashville a lot (might keep a place here) and frequents many of my favorite joints. I find it very difficult to follow the Nashville Code and not fan girl out and bother her. But our city has a time honored tradition of leaving celebrities the fuck alone. You’re welcome, Nicole Kidman, because the few times I’ve spotted her in the wild IT TOOK EVERY OUNCE OF MY WILLPOWER NOT TO SQUEAL AND LAUNCH MYSELF AT HER LIKE A MISSILE OF ADMIRATION.
