Black Pumas Share A Cover Of “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” In Honor Of Otis Redding

On the heels of receiving two nominations at the 64th annual Grammy  Awards, Black Pumas share today that they will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, December 13th. Additionally, the band is currently on tour throughout the U.S., and announce an exclusive livestream event during their show in Los Angeles. Black Pumas will be the first band to livestream from the newly minted YouTube Theater.

In honor of Otis Redding, who died 54 years ago today, Black Pumas release a gorgeous cover of “(Sittin’ On) the Dock of the Bay.” “Otis Redding is one of my live performance heroes, especially for his vocal tone and general stage presence,” says Eric Burton. “‘(Sittin’ On) the Dock of The Bay’ to me boasts his exceptional gifts as both an artist and songwriter.”

Black Pumas are currently nominated for two Grammy Awards. Capitol Cuts – Live from Studio A is up for “Best Rock Album” while “Know You Better (Live From Capitol Studio A)” is nominated for “Best Rock Performance.” Recorded direct to acetate—all live, no overdubs—Capitol Cuts – Live from Studio A captures a powerful moment in time. After months of cancelled shows Black Pumas went to Los Angeles last fall and laid down eight explosive tracks at the famed Capitol Studio A. The recording brims with pent up energy, nearly bursting through the grooves on the expansive and mind-blowing seven minute rendition of “Colors.” A few weeks later the song would receive a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year.
