Zac Brown Band’s New Project, ‘The Owl,’ Set For September Release

The Zac Brown Band has set Sept. 20 as the release date of their upcoming new studio album, The Owl, via BMG. A new digital single from the album, “Leaving Love Behind,” is out now and available across all streaming platforms.

Zac Brown Band is currently touring its summer 2019 “The Owl Tour,” in support of the upcoming new album. Both the tour and 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 new project reveals a deeper side of the band as they 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 and Ryan Tedder, among others.

“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 follows the band’s 2017 studio album, Welcome Home, which won the British Country Music Association Award for International Album of the Year. A three-time Grammy-winning band, Zac Brown Band has sold more than 30 million singles, nine million albums, have achieved 15 No. 1 radio singles and is the second act in history to have topped both Country Airplay and Mainstream Rock Songs charts.
