The field mouse is fast, but the owl sees at night.
Zac Brown Band announced they will release their sixth studio album, The Owl, on Sept. 20.
According to a press release, “The Owl will feature intricate melodies and dynamic vocal arrangements that Zac Brown Band has long been known for, as well as explore new sounds through unexpected collaborations with producers and writers across different facets of the music world, including Skrillex, Andrew Watt, Jason ‘Poo Bear’ Boyd, Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and more.”
The title was inspired by the lore surrounding the great horned owl, which can see perfectly at night, making it a reliable guide, even during dark times.
In addition, ZBB is back on country airwaves with the release of their new single, “Leaving Love Behind.”
“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.”
ZBB is currently headlining The Owl Tour through August.
