Pat Green Announces New Album, ‘Home’
Pat Green fans, rejoice: The Texan has announced that he is releasing a new album, Home, this summer.
“I recorded it with my band, instead of using studio musicians, which I’ve never really done before on my studio albums,” Green says of the album. “This time, I got into the studio with my band, and I felt that everyone really stretched out and worked really well together. I’m a great fan of collaboration, especially when it’s such a high caliber of talent involved.”
"I’ve never made a record that I wasn’t totally invested in and that I didn’t like the sound," Green says. "When you make records with big producers or big record labels, those records are really bombastic — that’s just the way they are going to sound.”
There is no word yet on if Green's most recent song, "While I Was Away," will be included on Home. The tune was recorded by Green as a tribute to parents who spend time working away from home, and the families waiting for them at home.
“This song is personal for anyone that has kids,” Green says. “This video is special because it reminds us that everyone has a common bond: love for our children, as well as the feeling that our ‘kids being kids’ goes by way too fast.”
Home will be available on Aug. 14. Donations to the Pat Green Foundation, which uses golf tournaments and other events to raise funds and awareness for community-based organizations, allow fans to pre-order Home and be entered in a raffle for a trip to Colorado and a new car.
