The Oak Ridge Boys announced this week they will release a project with producer Dave Cobb in the first quarter of 2018.

At a listening event this week during the Americana Music Association AmericanaFest at Nashville’s RCA Studio A, where the album was recorded, the Oaks previewed some songs from the yet-untitled project. This will be the group’s second album with Cobb, who produced the Oaks’ acclaimed The Boys Are Back album released in 2009.

Cobb’s vision for the Oaks on this new project was to dig way back into their gospel music roots. “Everyone has heard the Boys sing gospel, but nobody has heard it quite like this,” said Logan Rogers, founder of Lightning Rod Records. “Under Dave Cobb’s direction, they touch on unchartered territory—and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s saying something.”

The album will be released on Lightning Rod and distributed by Thirty Tigers.
