“The Owl” is coming out on September 20.
Zac Brown Band, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning band, have announced their highly anticipated sixth studio album, The Owl, to be released via BMG on Sept. 20, 2019.
The Owl will be available on vinyl, CD and download across digital streaming platforms and available for pre-order now.
Additionally, Zac Brown Band announced the new digital single off the forthcoming album, entitled “Leaving Love Behind,” is out now and available across all digital streaming platforms.
Today’s new digital single marks Zac Brown Band’s first new release since “Someone I Used To Know” debuted on Billboard’s Hot Country Song Chart in November 2018, eventually going on to win the band a 2019 CMT Award for Group Video of the Year.
Zac Brown Band is currently touring its 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.
“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.”
