"Shaky" previews the band's second album 'Long Live The Duke & The King' that follows on September 27, 2010.

An uplifting moment of countrified soul resplendent with the band's sweet four-part vocal harmonies, "Shaky" will be released on 7" and download formats. As with the rest of 'Long Live The Duke & The King', "Shaky" was self-produced in the band's own studio/shack deep in their home woods of Bearsville, New York and was mastered by the renowned Bob Ludwig (Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Band).

'Long Live The Duke & The King' captures the band's essence, a ramshackle travelling circus in which different voices tell different stories.

Simone Felice and Bonnie 'Bird' Burke remain the central architects, but it's a more collaborative project than its predecessor. Nowell 'The Deacon' Haskins' gospel-tinged lead vocal on "Hudson River" recalls the greats of classic R&B, while "No Easy Way Out" combines The Sensational Simi Stone's vintage soulful tones with a pop-orientated country rock sound that matches Felice's light-hearted description of the band's new sound as "Fleetwood Black."

Simone Felice returns to the UK in August for a full solo tour as well as festival appearances at GreenMan and Edinburgh.

The Duke & The King are set to return to the UK for their biggest gig to date at London's Electric Ballroom on October 27, 2010.
