WE ARE is a career-changing album from musician and activist Jon Batiste. WE ARE celebrates Black American culture and music while exploring themes of lineage, authenticity, excellence and evolution. This album is about honoring roots and traditions, while looking forward to the future and constantly evolving. Featuring Mavis Staples, Zadie Smith, PJ Morton, Trombone Shorty, Kizzo, Autumn Rowe, Steve Jordan, and many more...

Batiste's genre-mashing reinforces the album's theme of intergenerational wisdom, and it's also wonderfully fun.
-Matt Collar,, 4.5/5 stars (The AllMusic 2021 Year In Review - Best Of 2021)
A quick-and-joyous 40 minutes chockablock with feel-good vibes from jump blues to '70s-styled grooves... Batiste is a throwback in the best sense of the word, a sense we need about now.
-Kurt Gottschalk, Stereophile, May 2021
WE ARE recalls youthful memories, recurring feelings, and his views on the state of society. Consider it a musical autobiography aided by the jazz, R&B, hip hop, and soul he's gathered from his New Orleans childhood.
-Nathan Zeller, Analog Planet, Music 9/11, Sound 8/11
