Marvin Glover's new funk/groove/rock album Muse was produced by Larri “Bubba” Jones of Contact/Create Studios in Seattle. Jones has previously manned the board for such funk, R&B, jazz and rock artists as Cherrywine, Darrius Willrich and The Turn-Ons.

“I'm trying to get a heavier, funkier sound than I've been associated with in the past,” said Glover. “I convinced Bubba that Seattle's eclectic and engaging music scene is more conducive to making this record, unlike Austin [Texas], where I recorded One.”

Glover said it was Jones' more subtle work on albums by Willrich and The Turn-Ons that got his attention. “The groovier sound I'm going for has a lot to do with the tempos, beats and quirky sounds we're working with,” said Glover. “It's the new funky groove-oriented assault, which is all about layers and instrument placement.”

The album is set for release this summer; shortly thereafter, Glover will hit the road with other artists on his Starving Dog Records label.
