The Avett Brothers Announce New Album and Release New Song
The Avett Brothers took to social media to announce that their new album, “Closer Than Together,” will be released on Oct 4. In a statement, Seth Avett spoke about their new album:
“We didn’t make a record that was meant to comment on the sociopolitical landscape that we live in. We did, however, make an album that is obviously informed by what is happening now on a grander scale all around us… because we are a part of it and it is a part of us. ‘Closer Than Together’ is a record of obvious American origin – a creation that fittingly could only come about through hard work, measured freedom, awe-inspiring landscapes, and perfectly flavored individualism. The Avett Brothers will probably never make a sociopolitical record. But if we did, it might sound something like this.”
The music video for the album’s first release,”High Steppin”, was a collaboration between Crackerfarm, who directed the video, and Scott Avett. The video is a great first glimpse at the new album!
“High Steppin”, is now available on a variety of music streaming services!
