Four time Grammy Award winner Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit return with their new album ‘Reunions’ – out May 15th on Thirty Tigers. The first hit of music comes in the shape of melody-packed, anthemic new single ‘Be Afraid’. ‘Reunions’ was produced by celebrated producer and long time collaborator Dave Cobb.
“Success is a very nice problem to have but I think ‘how do I get through it and not lose what made me good in the first place?’” he says. “A lot of these songs and the overall concept of this album is how do I progress as an artist and a human being and still keep that same hunger that I had when I wasn’t quite so far along in either respect.”
The result is a seamless collection of ten new songs that delve into relationships with lovers, friends, children, parents, and one’s self. There are rousing anthems that will have stadiums singing along, lyrical standouts that highlight some of Isbell’s best writing to date, moving looks at youth and childhood, a deep dive into the challenges of relationships, and deeply personal songs about alcoholism and parenthood.
Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit will also hit the road in Europe during November, with ten dates across the continent. Following on from previous double nights at London’s HMV Forum and one night at the Roundhouse, Isbell will now take on the iconic Eventim Apollo on the 17th.
