Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard Making a Move Toward Advancement?

I'm not a fan of Alabama Shakes because I'm old so I don't like new things or people making loud noises. But a lot of people think a lot of Brittany Howard, and I do recognize that she is an original voice (but why so loud?). So I was intrigued when I read this in Consequence of Sound:

Alabama Shakes frontwoman extraordinaire Brittany Howard has dropped a new album under her Thunderbitch side project. The group — which also features members of Fly Golden Eagle and Clear Plastic Masks — surfaced back in 2012, but this self-titled effort marks their first proper full-length release. Among the 10 tracks included are “Leather Jacket”, “I Just Wanna Rock n Roll” (which we know Howard can do, no problem), and “Wild Child”. It also includes the band’s early cuts “I Don’t Care” and “My Baby Is My Guitar”.
 A black leather jacket is one of the hallmarks of the Advanced, as is embracing rock 'n' roll, especially in song lyrics. Now if she can go truly solo, I'll really be intrigued.
