Everything We Know About the Zac Brown Band’s New Album
The Zac Brown Band recently announced that their 2018 Down the Rabbit Hole Live Tour will be extending into 2019 -- but that wasn't all. Along with that news, they told their fans that new music will be coming soon.
"We’re hard at work in the studio," the ZBB shared in a press release. "There’s a lot more to come."
The Boot has gathered everything we know so far about the upcoming project. Read on for all the details.
We don't know the title of the new ZBB album just yet, but as soon as we find out, we'll update here.
The Release Date
No word on this project's release date yet, but as soon as it's announced, we'll post it here.
The Record Label
Welcome Home was released via Elektra Records, but for their next project, Zac Brown Band have partnered with BMG / BBR Music Group's Wheelhouse Records. Says Brown, “We’ve always approached our work and music in our own way, only doing what feels right for us. We’re excited to have BMG as a new partner; they understand our vision and sound and will help shape this next chapter in a way that’s uniquely ours.”
The Album Cover
We don't have the cover art for the new ZBB album yet. When we do, we'll add it here.
No word yet on who will be at the helm for this album. ZBB's Welcome Home was produced by Dave Cobb.
On Nov. 9, the Zac Brown Band dropped a brand-new single, "Someone I Used to Know," co-written by pop star Shawn Mendes, with whom they shared a recent episode of CMT Crossroads. The pop-infused track takes a turn from the band's traditional country spin and pulls in a sitar chorus line and finger snaps.
"It's been a long time comin' / Couldn't keep on runnin'," Brown sings. "Had to hit rock bottom to know / When you keep on losin' with the path you're choosin' / Then it's time to let go / Of someone that I used to know."
"Someone That I Used to Know" is the first taste of ZBB's new music. “This is an exciting time for us,” Brown says in a press release. “We’re ... really proud of "Someone I Used to Know." It’s a special track and is just the beginning."
According to a press release announcing the band's 2019 The Owl Tour, Zac Brown Band's new album takes inspiration the great horned owl, an animal that can still see perfectly at night. Its sight allows the owl to be a guide, even in dark moments, and both Zac Brown Band's 2019 tour and the band's next album are inspired by the lore surrounding the creature.
The Boot will update this story when more songs are revealed.
Zac Brown Band's 2019 Down the Rabbit Hole Live Tour is scheduled to kick off on March 1, at Tulsa, Okla.'s BOK Center. Shows are scheduled in Phoenix, Ariz.; Virginia Beach, Va.; and Tuscaloosa, Ala.; among other locations, before the trek concludes on April 27 in Peoria, Ill.
In late May, Zac Brown Band will begin their 2019 The Owl Tour. Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Caroline Jones will be supporting the band on their Summer 2019 tour stops, which include shows in Bethel, N.Y.; Irvine, Calif.; and more.
