– Zac. Brown Band launches "The Comeback" on Oct. 15.
With a co-writer credit on every track, lead singer Zac Brown also co-produced the entire record alongside frequent collaborator, Ben Simonetti. The lead single is "Same Boat."
"The Comeback celebrates our collective resilience as a community," said Brown. "This music is about standing together and rediscovering our roots and what makes us human. We feel incredibly blessed to be back out on the road again, sharing these new songs with our fans. The only good thing about getting knocked down is 'The Comeback' when it comes back around."
The band is also sharing another preview with the release of "Slow Burn." The track, written by Brown, Simonetti and Ben Hayslip, recounts the experience of revisiting places that bring back memories of a first love.
"'Slow Burn' is definitely about that first, young love," Brown said. "There are very specific memories that are tied to being in love for the first time. 'Slow Burn' captures the feeling of going back to places where the details of all those experiences that helped shape you come rushing back."
The new record is the band's latest since their 2019 release of "The Owl."
