New Music: Galactic Says It’s Carnival Time

On its new Carnivale Electricos, Galactic rearranges one of Mardi Gras’ signature songs—“Carnival Time”—and brings along the man who wrote it and made it famous, Al “Carnival Time” Johnson. The album is due out on Fat Tuesday—February 21—but since parades have started and it is Carnival Time, the band has given us the song as a download to preview the album.
