I'll Find a Way is the 65th album from American gospel group The Blind Boys of Alabama, released in October 2013 via Sony Masterworks and Music On Vinyl.

The Blind Boys of Alabama first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the late 1930s (including Jimmy Carter, who leads the group today), the band began touring throughout the South during the Jim Crow era of the 1940s and 1950s, rising to prominence thanks to their unique sound that blended the close harmonies of early jubilee gospel with the more fervent improvisations of hard gospel.

As gospel fans began drifting away from the genre towards soul music in the 60's and 70's, The Blind Boys stayed true to their roots, refusing to ‘cross over’ to secular music. This saw their audiences dwindle, however the Blind Boys persevered and their time came again, starting in the 1980s with their starring role in the Obie Award-winning musical “The Gospel at Colonus,” which began a new chapter in their incredible history. 

In 2001, they released Spirit of the Century on Peter Gabriel’s Real World label, mixing traditional church tunes with songs by Tom Waits and The Rolling Stones, and won the first of their Grammy Awards. The next year they backed Gabriel on his album Up and joined him on a world tour, although a bigger break may have come when David Simon chose their cover of Tom Waits’ "Way Down in the Hole" as the theme song for the first season of the HBO series The Wire. 

Produced by Justin Vernon (frontman of Bon Iver), and recorded over four days at his Wisconsin studio, I'll Find a Way sees The Blind Boys of Alabama working with Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), Casey Dienel (White Hinterland), and Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), among others, to produce a joyful, and jubilant album.

Check out the cover of Bob Dylan's "Every Grain of Sand" featuring Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, and “God Put A Rainbow In The Cloud” and I'll Find A Way (featuring Shara Worden) and a Video of The Making of the Album.

This is a Music On Vinyl reissue on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, with a Printed Insert, pressed in Europe.
