We Are (stylized in all caps) is the sixth studio album by Jon Batiste. It was released on Verve Records on March 19, 2021.[5] In April 2022, the album won Album of the Year at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards; it earned Batiste eleven nominations in total, with five wins.[6]

Background

Batiste began working on the album in late 2019, making it in his dressing room over six days in September and finishing it by mid-2020. While largely written and recorded prior to the events of 2020, the album's lyrical and thematic content reflects such events as the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and his involvement in 2020, leading Black Lives Matter protests in New York after the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.[5][7][8]

On June 12, 2020, he released the single "We Are", featuring the band from his New Orleans alma mater, the St. Augustine High School Marching 100.[9]

As part of Record Store Day 2020, Batiste released a limited edition EP titled We Are: Roots & Traditions.[10]

The album also features Mavis Staples, Zadie Smith, PJ Morton, and Trombone Shorty.[11][5]

Speaking to Atwood Magazine, Batiste described We Are as "a representation of genreless music that's just about the story" and "a culmination of my life to this point".[5]

Batiste released a deluxe edition of the album on October 15, 2021.[12]
