The Grammy-winning singer and accordionist shared photos on social media showing the band working in the studio with the caption, “We are so happy to announce our new record label…Freddie Records.”
“I feel very proud to be a part of Freddie Records, he’s celebrating 50 years,” Farias told Tejano Nation.
Freddie Records was started in 1969 by legendary singer Freddie Martinez. The record label has released countless hits over the years with some of Tejano music’s biggest stars and received multiple wins at the Grammys and Latin Grammys for many albums.
“I’m also excited to start my new CD,” Farias added. “Thanks to my band, they did an awesome job and starting a new journey. God is good.”
The new album from the Conjunto Hall of Famer is expected to be finished by August with a new single to be released soon. No official release date for the full album has been announced. His latest single, released in June, is a duet with Lydia Castillo, a cover of the 1960s hit song “Baby Don’t Go”.
Farias released two albums with former record label VMB Music Group, including “Simplemente Yo” in 2018 and “Volando Alto” in 2016.
