Smooth-talkin' Andre dishes the dirt on new album 'I Wanna Go Back to Detroit City' in this interview with Dirty Roots Radio.
Paste Magazine on Andre's new record 'I Wanna Go Back to Detroit City': "An album that again owes more to the city’s garage-rock legacy than to its most famous source of R&B, Motown. It’s a funny, funky, grimy rock ’n’ soul record."
More love for the new record! "Here, he’s backed by a modern Motor City who’s-who of players for a set of slow-burining psychedelic soul-reflections on a city that, like Andre, has seen its peaks and valleys."

"We were just working on instrumental tracks and ideas. We left for lunch, and as we were coming back to studio, Andre realized it was a block away from the (former) Fortune studios. He was standing where he'd done all that stuff 50 years ago."
