T minus nine days (May 12) until Zac Brown Band releases its much-anticipated fifth major-label studio album, Welcome Home, a project that Zac promised would go “straight back to our roots.”
Zac has kept his word. Following the release of “My Old Man” (Feb. 3), “Real Thing” (March 20), “Family Table” (April 7) and “All the Best” (April 21), ZBB continued its roll-out of new songs from its upcoming album by releasing their rootsiest song yet, “Roots.”
Produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson), “Roots” is a definite throwback to ZBB’s early sound, deviating 180 degrees from the band’s 2015 album, Jekyll + Hyde, which pushed the country boundaries with traces of electronic music, hard rock and big band sounds.
ZBB’s new lyric video for “Roots” features a slideshow of photos and videos that serve as a timeline, documenting the band’s experiences and successes over the years, including an opening clip that shows ZBB winning a Grammy.
