Zac Brown Band have announced that they will release their highly anticipated new single, “Same Boat,” on Friday, June 11th. “Same Boat” will mark the band’s first song with their new record label, Warner Music Nashville/Home Grown Music. Zac Brown co-wrote the track with Ben Simonetti and Jonathan Singleton.
“‘Same Boat’ is really about the human condition,” said Zac Brown. “It’s about how we all go through the same things, all together. It is a chance to be able to remind people to be positive, be good to each other and show empathy. You don’t know what it’s like to walk around in someone else’s shoes. We’re all human beings. Let’s spread some love around and show kindness to each other.”
The song was recorded at the renowned Southern Ground Nashville studio and features contributions from the entire band, with melodic vocal harmonies, brisk percussion, and the lively violin. This marks the first time that the band was able to reunite safely in the studio to record new music together.
After an unexpected and unprecedented 14-month hiatus from touring due to COVID-19, the upcoming U.S. “The Comeback Tour” will bring the band to some of the nation’s most iconic venues, like Boston’s Fenway Park on August 8 and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on October 17, with 23 stops along the way.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get back out on the road and share our new music with our fans,” Brown says as the band’s tour preparations are already shifting into high gear. “It’s been a long, difficult year for everyone, and we’re fired up to be reuniting with our crew, get back on tour, and celebrate a brand-new world.”
