Al Green has released his first new single in five years.

Arriving via Fat Possum Records, Perfect Day sees the soul legend putting his vocal prowess on Lou Reed's 1972 classic of the same name. Green commented:

"I loved Lou’s original Perfect Day. The song immediately puts you in a good mood. We wanted to preserve that spirit, while adding our own sauce and style."

Guided by Green's emotive, velvety voice, and driven by members of the Hi Rhythm Section band, musicians who contributed to some of his biggest hits from the '70s, it was recorded back in February at Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, Tennessee. UK singer Raye also lends her talents to backing vocals over a sweeping string arrangement.

Produced by Matthew Johnson and Bruce Watson, it follows Green's 2018 version of Freddy Fender's Before The Next Teardrop Falls. Press play below.

Green will play US shows in September and November, including a date in Highland, California before Midwest shows in Detroit, Michigan and Saint Charles, Missouri over Thanksgiving weekend, with Bettye Lavette supporting. Tickets go on general sale at 10am local time on Friday (August 25).
