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!
