Award winning activist, actor and artist Common, four-time GRAMMY Award winning pianist/producer Robert Glasper, and drummer/producer extraordinaire Karriem Riggins announce the formation of their new group August Greene. The band’s debut self-titled, Amazon Original album will be released on March 9th.

The first single “Optimistic” dropped featuring Brandy. “August Greene actually formed before we chose a name, before we even knew it was a band,” says Common. “Karriem, Rob and I go back many years. It was something natural. When I started working with them it was like, ‘man, this feels like home,’ and it felt new and fresh. We love working together. The music takes us all to new places and it just feels like, everything I want to be as a musician is within the group of August Greene.”

August Greene will make their live debut at New York City’s Highline Ballroom on January 26th for Robert Glasper’s sixth annual GRAMMY Joint.

Starting March 9, the album will be available for digital purchase on Amazon Music and to stream on both Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music.
