Robby Krieger, the founding member and the guitarist of American rock band, The Doors, announced the release of his debut album with his current band The Soul Savages this coming January 2024.

The self-titled collection is expected to feature 10 instrumental tracks with a variety of genres, including jazz fusion, soul, psychedelic rock, blues, funk, and more. All of it was recorded by Krieger and his band at Love Street Studios in Glendale, California.

Meanwhile, the lead single entitled “A Day in L.A.” has been released simultaneously. Krieger said:

“I’ve had this studio for the last six or seven years, and it’s really made me branch out as a musician. We wrote together, and soul music became a big part of this album. These guys are world-class players—they’ve worked with Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, Lenny Kravitz—they have that great groove pedigree.”

The Soul Savages is composed of keyboardist and longtime Krieger collaborator Ed Roth, Grammy-winning bassist Kevin “Brandino” Brandon, and drummer Franklin Vanderbilt, who is known to have collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz, and Chaka Khan.

In one of his interviews, Krieger noted that inspired him to have a style of playing that he “hadn’t done in a while.” It has also inspired him to do new things. Krieger said:

“For example, in the past, I reserved my slide playing for more of the bluesy stuff, but I stretched out on the album playing slide-over jazz, funk, and soul grooves. I want to keep evolving, and these guys really inspire me.”
