Grammy-winning soul rockers Tedeschi Trucks Band – fronted by electric guitar luminaries Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi – have released the third instalment of their epic quadruple album/film series on YouTube.

Ahead of the I Am the Moon. III: the Fall digital and CD release this Friday, July 29th, fans can now stream the album-length companion film from director Alix Lambert.

Taking inspiration from the “Romeo and Juliet of the East” Layla and Majnun poetry, The Fall continues I Am The Moon's themes of passion and despair, with singers/guitarists Susan Tedeschi and Mike Mattison taking the songwriting lead along with keyboardist/singer Gabe Dixon.

The Fall begins with "the vivid hurt and explicit challenge of "Somehow," an easy-rolling groove that soon turns into full-blown soul power," notes David Fricke in his bio notes.

"How many times will you walk away?/How many times is the price I pay too high?" muses Tedeschi in the song’s opening lines…

Appearing in four regular instalments, the I Am the Moon album and film releases have had fans on the edge of their seats in recent months as Tedeschi Trucks Band drip-fed each part in sequence.

Following the release of I Am the Moon: I. Crescent on June 3rd, I Am the Moon: II. Ascension dropped four weeks later on July 1st.

Similarly, this Friday’s release comes a further four weeks on, with the final/fourth part completing the set on August 26th in the form of I Am the Moon: IV. Farewell.

Stay tuned to the Tedeschi Trucks Band YouTube channel for the final film premiere on August 23rd.
