Blackberry Smoke Share Two New Songs From Upcoming Album [LISTEN]
Blackberry Smoke are giving their fans a sneak peek of what to expect from their upcoming new album, 'Holding All the Roses.' The group is sharing two of their new songs, 'Living in the Song' and 'Rock and Roll Again,' in advance of the brand-new project's release.
The band recently released the lyric video for the album's first single, 'Let Me Help You (Find the Door).' 'Holding All the Roses' is the followup to Blackberry Smoke's 2012 critically acclaimed 'Whippoorwill' record, released on Zac Brown's Southern Ground label.
“I think that this record does a really good job of conveying what we do and what we’re about,” lead singer Charlie Starr explains of the new record. “[Compared to] ‘The Whippoorwill,’ and the way those songs flowed, these are more up and down.”
The new disc will be released on Rounder Records.
"Unfortunately, no fault of Zac Brown‘s, but Southern Ground Artists just sort of dissolved," Starr tells The Boot. "It just happens. I won’t speak for Zac, but I’d imagine that he’s disappointed -- not in himself, but, you know, the marketplace is tough, and he had a very pure vision as far as the bands that he signed. It’s just tough."
'Holding All the Roses' will be available on Feb. 2 in Europe, and on Feb. 10 in the United States. Pre-order the album here.
