Asked about writing the material for 'Potato Hole', Booker notes that "I really feel like I've been opened up again, I've got the creative muse working for me. It's like I have discovered a new method, a little road I can take to open it up, and I'm excited about playing this music."
'Potato Hole' is already drawing praise from critics. Pitchfork debuted the song "Warped Sister" last month, writing that "Booker T. clearly takes the lead, opening with gigantic chords before coaxing out a surprisingly catchy melody from his organ. He gets so much texture and nuance out of his instrument that it sounds like it's actually forming words."
