Black Pumas have released a new song called “Mrs. Postman,” a track off the band’s upcoming album, Chronicles of a Diamond.
“I was partly thinking about how much joy the postmen can bring to people’s lives, but I also wanted to encourage the people in my family and anyone else working a blue-collar job,” says vocalist Eric Burton. “I know from firsthand experience how arduous it can be, and I wanted to send a message saying, ‘I still see all the beauty and light in you.'”
Chronicles of a Diamond, which also features the single “More Than a Love Song,” will be released October 27. It’s the follow-up to Black Pumas’ 2019 self-titled debut, which spawned the single “Colors.”
Along with the new song premiere, Black Pumas have announced a run of 2024 tour dates, set to kick off January 18 in Philadelphia and wrap up April 6 in Nashville.
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 29, at 10 a.m. local time. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit BlackPumas.com.
