Boise singer-songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers is at it again.

Stigers is set to release his 10th studio album, and wants to make the debut memorable. The album is titled “Let's Go Out Tonight.”

In a news release, Stigers called his album "probably the most autobiographical album I've ever made. It hits so many places I've been and things I've gone through and am currently going through."

Stigers will perform an album release concert at Boise's Record Exchange at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 21st.

Wristbands guaranteeing admission to the concert are available  with pre-orders of this new album.

To give you some insight into where Curtis is coming from with this new release, I've included a section of the news release describing the album:

“A departure from Stigers' previous projects, 'Let's Go Out Tonight' sidesteps the Great American Songbook completely. Rather, it includes a vibrant cross-section of pop, folk, country and soul songs from songwriters ranging from Bob Dylan, Eddie Floyd and Richard Thompson to Jeff Tweedy, Hayes Carll and David Poe, whose "Everyone Loves Lovers" was crafted expressly for Stigers.”

Way to go Curtis!
