Zac Brown Band have announced the upcoming release of their sixth studio album. The superstar Southern rock group are set to release The Owl in September.

The Owl marks ZBB's first new music since releasing "Someone I Used to Know" in November of 2018. The group have released a new digital single from the forthcoming album, "Leaving Love Behind." According to a press release, the album title is "inspired by the lore surrounding the great horned owl, which can see perfectly at night, making it a reliable guide, even during dark times." The group drew on that to create "their most personal album to date."

The Owl features collaborations with artists from across the musical spectrum, including Skrillex, Andrew Watt, Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd, Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and more.

“We’ve been working tirelessly on this album over the past couple years, ensuring every detail is perfect,” Zac Brown states. “We are always pushing ourselves as musicians by blurring genre boundaries and incorporating all kinds of music we are personally inspired by, elevating what we are capable as a group. This album will have something for everyone, The Owl is exciting, raw and unexpected. We couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished on this record and can’t wait to finally share it with the fans."

Zac Brown Band are currently on the road for their 2019 The Owl Tour in support of the forthcoming album. The Owl is set for release on Sept. 20 via BBR Music Group. The album is currently available for pre-order across a variety of music retailers.
