The Reverend Al Green has released his first new recording in nearly a decade. The 72 year old soul legend has been working with producer Matt Ross-Spring at the Sam Philips Studios in Memphis to create a new version of the Freddie Fender song ‘Until The Next Teardrop Falls’. It’s part of a new series of productions specially commissioned by Amazon which also features William Bell, John Prine and Margo Price.

This new recording features some old friends of Al Green, including Hammond B3 legend Charles Hodges. Matt Ross-Spring told NPR: "Charles is the organ player on all the classic Al Green stuff and unbeknownst to me they hadn't played together since the 1980s! The session was already pretty special but their reunion (both musically and personally) was very profound for everyone."

Green has been persuaded out of his semi-retirement for the project. He rarely steps into the studio these days but is regularly seen preaching at the Full Gospel Tabernacle – the Memphis church he founded in 1976.
