Nothing better than a new single leading up to an album release.
Brothers Osborne have been teasing us with the promise of a new album since April when they dropped the three-track EP Nobody’s Nobody, followed by a single release of “Goodbye’s Kickin’ In” in late May.
And while the singles have been nice, fans have been waiting to see when we’d be finally be getting a full-length album.
Well now we have our answer, as the duo announced their self-titled album coming soon.
Slated to release in September, Brothers Osborne will be the Grammy-winning duo’s fourth studio album, and they are doing it their way this time.
“Our self-titled album will be coming on September 15. We’ve always intentionally had an air of mystery around us, but now we are more ourselves creatively and publicly than we’ve ever been.
With this new album and the help of producer Mike Elizondo, we’re all in. It’s time to lean in to who we are.”
TJ Osborne notes that in the curation of this album:
“We’ve always had a lot of mystery intentionally around the things we have done, but with this album, we decided to be all in. And doing that reminded me of what it was like when I first started playing music, when it was an outlet for my angst or just a way to have fun.”
And John also gave his thoughts on embracing themselves via their sound:
“Since our last record, we’ve been very forthcoming with who we are. By acknowledging TJ’s personal life and my mental health struggles, we are more ourselves creatively and publicly than we’ve ever been.
We are always pushing ourselves, always evolving, and not afraid to change.
But at the end of the day, we are also who we are.”
The Bros also accompanied their album announcement with the release of “Sun Ain’t Gone Down Yet,” a lighthearted drinking song that perfectly complements some of the heavier tracks they’ve released from the album so far.
“We like to play music, we like to be serious, but sometimes we like to have fun, too. We like to drink, too. We like to party on a boat, too. “Sun Ain’t Even Gone Down Yet” is out now.
Give it a listen and party with us. It’ll (hopefully) be your new favorite summer song.”
They were not kidding that the song would be your favorite song of summer. This track just sounds like day drinking.
Sets the scene perfectly:
“…already high noon high If a cold libation’s any indication We’re gonna have a hell of a night.”
I am beyond thrilled to hear the ever-evolving sound of the brothers. From their comments, it seems that this one will be different from who they’ve been in the past, but that they feel it captures the essence of who they want to be moving forward.
September is right around the corner, and the singles already released are a great indication that the remainder of this album’s tracks will be something to look forward to.
