– Zac Brown Band will release a new single, "Same Boat," on Friday.
"Same Boat" will mark the band's first song with Warner Music Nashville/Home Grown Music. The GRAMMY-winning band's front man Zac Brown penned the tune with Ben Simonetti and Jonathan Singleton.
"'Same Boat' is really about the human condition," said Brown. "It's about how we all go through the same things, all together. It is a chance to be able to remind people to be positive, be good to each other and show empathy. You don't know what it's like to walk around in someone else's shoes. We're all human beings. Let's spread some love around and show kindness to each other."
The song was recorded at the Southern Ground Nashville studio and features contributions from the entire band, with vocal harmonies, percussion and violin. This marks the first time that the band was able to reunite safely in the studio to record new music together since COVID-19 started.
"Same Boat" follows the release of Zac Brown Band's two digital singles released in 2020, "The Man Who Loves You The Most" and "You and Islands."
The group will be back on the road on the upcoming U.S. "The Comeback Tour." Stops include Boston's Fenway Park on Aug. 8 and Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Oct. 17, with 23 stops along the way.
"We couldn't be more excited to get back out on the road and share our new music with our fans," Brown said. "It's been a long, difficult year for everyone, and we're fired up to be reuniting with our crew, get back on tour, and celebrate a brand-new world."
