Zac Brown Band fans rejoice! For the past month or so the group have been releasing tracks from their upcoming fourth studio album ‘Jekyll + Hyde’ to YouTube, and it definitely sounds like we’re in for a treat when the record finally drops next Tuesday, April 28th. Lead single ‘Homegrown’ of course recently completed a three-week #1 on radio (you can check that one out here in case you somehow missed it), and now three more songs have surfaced on their official Vevo account via YouTube: ‘Dress Blues’ (a Jason Isbell cover), ‘Heavy Is The Head’ (featuring Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden), and ‘Loving You Easy’ (set to be the second single from the project, going for adds on May 4).
While ‘Dress Blues’ has a rather country/Americana vibe (plus a metal guitar solo halfway through, because why not?), ‘Heavy Is The Head’ is much heavier, and ‘Loving You Easy’ has a Motown/soul vibe, showing their impressive versatility and repertoire of accessible styles. You can check out all three of the new songs below (the new single just got posted yesterday, so likelihood is you definitely haven’t heard that one yet!), and let me know what you think. Too many different styles going into one record, or just one more example of how Zac Brown Band are awesome and genre doesn’t matter?
