Luaka Bop is set to release soul rarities, ‘The Time For Peace Is Now’ 

Luaka Bop, founded by David Byrne is the label behind releases from artists including Alice Coltrane, Os Mutantes, and William Onyeabor.

Luaka Bop is set to release, The Time For Peace Is Now come September 13. The second in their World Spirituality Classics Series. Following on from the first release The Ecstatic Music Of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda back in 2017, this new record features “soulful, passionate, and urgent songs from obscure 45’s, dug up from a long dormancy in attics, sheds and crates across the American south, are a subset of seventies-era gospel, focusing not on Jesus or God, but instead on ourselves, and how we exist with each other” says the label.

The Time For Peace Is Now was compiled by soul DJ Greg Belson, and includes special essays from New York Times author Jonathan Lethem, gospel expert Robert F. Darden and Pastor Keith L. Whitney.
