Hootie & The Blowfish To Return With First Album In 15 Years

Hootie & the Blowfish are back with the band’s first new album in nearly 15 years, Imperfect Circle. The project is due out Nov. 1 on Universal Music Group’s Capitol Nashville imprint, and is available for pre-order now. According to a story in USA Today, the album will feature background vocals from Sheryl Crow, and finds the band collaborating with Lucie Silvas on a track Rucker co-wrote with pop star Ed Sheeran.

Following the nostalgic Group Therapy Tour this summer, fans now eager to hear new music by the band can get early access to a first track called “Rollin’” available exclusively at Hootie.com, before it becomes available for purchase and streaming on Sept. 6.

Hootie and the Blowfish members Darius Rucker (lead vocals), Mark Bryan (guitarist), Dean Felber (bass) and Jim “Soni” Sonefeld (drums), have sold more than 25 million albums to date following the release of their debut project Cracked Rear View in 1994, which included hits “Hold My Hand,” “Let Her Cry,” and “Only Wanna Be With You.”
