Albums Of The Week: Bootsy Collins | The Power of the One

The starchild bassist brings the funk back again with his umpteenth studio set.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Bootsy Collins has released his new album, The Power of The One. “Music is always a soother, a healer, and that’s how I want to use this record,” said Collins. “The Power of the One is what pulls us through. Everyone has “The One” inside of them. You never know who is using you for guidance, so always be pure and never fake the funk. Everybody’s got a light. Everybody needs to shine. It’s there, we just have to trust and use the guidance that is within us, and know that The One knows your program. It was written inside your heart before you made that mad dash racing to be the first one to the egg! You are perfect in the eyes of The One.”

The album was co-written, produced and arranged by Collins, and the recording process began prior to the current pandemic at Sweetwater Studios in Fort Wayne, Ind. Ultimately, it was completed during quarantine at Collins’ own Boot-Cave Studios in Cincinnati, Ohio. The album includes an all-star cast of features including: Christian McBride, Snoop Dogg, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Victor Wooten, Béla Fleck, Steve Jordan and more.”
