Record Kicks announces Keep It To Yourself, the new album by premier Dutch soul band The Tibbs, out next January 26th. Listen to the first single “Ain’t It Funny”, out today

Dutch vintage soul combo The Tibbs present their highly anticipated new album ‘Keep It to Yourself,’ to be released on LP, CD and digital format next January 26th on Milan-based label Record Kicks and now available for pre-order.

The first single taken from the new album is “Ain’t It Funny”, a soul stomper available from today, November 29th, on all digital platforms. According to the band, “Ain’t It Funny” is “about a feeling of powerlessness. Some of the world’s problems – think of global warming, climate change, racism – seem too big to be tackled by yourself, and that can make you feel small. Do the things we do in our daily life really have an impact on the bigger picture?”

Produced by Paul Willemsen (Michelle David, Beans & Fatback) and mastered in Nashville by soul veteran Bob Olhsson, who used to cut vinyl for Motown back in the day, the new album ‘Keep It to Yourself’ is the band’s third Long Play. It contains 12 fresh ‘n vibrant tracks that once again will take you back to the golden days of soul music. Prepare to be swept away on a groovy, soulful odyssey with one the most sensational and enchanting soul bands from the Netherlands!

Based around Amsterdam, The Tibbs is a group of seasoned musicians who draw inspiration from the timeless music of the 1960s, channeling the emotional depth and raw authenticity of that era’s classics. Led by their charismatic female vocalist and backed by a powerhouse lineup of drums, guitar, bass, organ and a three-piece horn section, they have been wowing audiences with their live performances. They took off in 2012 working right from the start with producer Paul Willemsen (Beans & Fatback, Lefties Soul Connection, Michelle David & The Gospel Sessions).

In 2016, their first LP Takin’ Over marked their debut with Milan-based imprint Record Kicks. In late 2018, singer Elsa Bekman decided to focus on a solo career and The Tibbs duly began their search for a truly worthy successor, bringing astonishing vocalist Roxanne Hartog and the band together for the first time with their sophomore album Another Shot Fired, released in November 2020. Now, with their third album ‘Keep It to Yourself,’ a testament to their dedication to keeping the soulful spirit alive, The Tibbs are once more ready for lift off.
