More than two years after the release of We The Common, San Francisco's dynamic Thao & The Get Down Stay Down are set release their newest studio album A Man Alive, arriving March 4th, 2016 on Ribbon Music.

Recorded in the band's native city, the newest album also features production help of Tune-Yards' figurehead Merrill Garbus. On the new work, enigmatic frontwoman Thao Nguyen says, "With this record I had clearer vision and aspirations. I wanted emotion. I wanted power. I wanted A Man Alive to be beat-and bass-driven. A Man Alive is more instrumental, more riff-and loop-centric, and has more manipulated sounds."

"The record is essentially about my relationship with my dad, its trajectory," she continues. "It's a document of my life in conjunction with his, even though we've always been leading our lives away from each other. Some are optimistic and forgiving, some are the opposite."

Check out the album's first single 'Nobody Dies' below and pre-order A Man Alive today on iTunes.
