Zac Brown Band will release their sixth studio album The Owl via BMG on 20th September 2019.
Available on vinyl, CD and download across digital streaming platforms, The Owl will feature the tracks Someone I Used to Know and Leaving Love Behind, which we selected as EF Country’s Single of the Week.
The Owl will explore new sounds for the band through collaborations with producers and writers across different facets of the music world including Skrillex, Andrew Watt, Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd, Max Martin, Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder among others. It will also feature the melodies and vocal arrangements Zac Brown Band are known for.
“We’ve been working tirelessly on this album over the past couple years, ensuring every detail is perfect,” said Zac Brown. “We are always pushing ourselves as musicians by blurring genre boundaries and incorporating all kinds of music we are personally inspired by, elevating what we are capable as a group. This album will have something for everyone, The Owl is exciting, raw, and unexpected. We couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished on this record and can’t wait to finally share it with the fans.”
The Owl is the follow-up to 2017 album Welcome Home, which won the British Country Music Association Award for International Album of the Year.
Zac Brown Band are currently touring their summer 2019 The Owl Tour, in support of the upcoming new album release. Both the tour and upcoming album title are inspired by the lore surrounding the great horned owl, which can see perfectly at night, making it a reliable guide, even during dark times.
The Owl will explore a deeper side of Zac Brown Band as they pull from this inspiration to create their most personal album to date.
