If “Better Man” is any indication, The Breaker is going to be one hell of an album.
The band is collaborating with Painkiller producer and super genius, Jay Joyce once again for this project, along with an amazing lineup of songwriters including Taylor Swift, Lori McKenna, & TJ Osborne.
Phillip had nothing but great things to say about working with Joyce again: “Technical performances aren’t what he’s looking for – he’s looking to capture a feeling. We may spend a whole day or more on one song. Playing it not from your head, but from your heart. That’s what Jay is so great at. He’s a rare breed.”
Needless to say, we’re excited.
