Jason Isbell Readies June Release of New Album, “The Nashville Sound”

Singer/songwriter/musician—and all-around bad mo-fo—Jason Isbell has a new album in the works, The Nashville Sound.

The new 10-song offering, which is scheduled to drop on June 16, addresses a range of real-life subjects, according to the press release, including politics and cultural privilege (“White Man’s World”), longing nostalgia (“The Last of My Kind”), love and mortality (“If We Were Vampires”), the toxic effect of today’s pressures (“Anxiety”), the remnants of a break-up (“Chaos and Clothes”) and finding hope (“Something to Love”). Songs such as “Cumberland Gap” and “Hope the Highroad” find Jason and his bandmates going back to their rock roots full force.

The new studio album will reunite Jason will his band, the 400 Unit (Derry deBorja, Chad Gamble, Jimbo Hart, Amanda Shires and Sadler Vaden), for their first project together since 2011’s Here We Rest.

Dave Cobb, who produced Jason’s previous albums Southeastern (2013) and Something More Than Free (2015), will also helm The Nashville Sound.

In addition to a busy tour schedule this summer, Jason will headline Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium for five dates in October, before heading overseas to Europe for more than a dozen dates. Tickets for the Ryman shows go on sale on March 17 at 10 a.m. CT.
