After releasing five singles from their blockbuster sophomore album You Get What You Give, the Zac Brown Band is gearing up for their third major-label release, Uncaged, due July 10.
Today, the bearded-n-beanied Georgia natives released the lead single off their next set, an old school, true-blue country tune — we’re talking wire-brush drum beats, three-part harmonies, ample guitar noodling, and lots of fiddle riffs — with a refreshingly modern melody called “The Wind.”
“My love will find you anywhere, anywhere my love,” Zac sings on the lighthearted romantic ditty, which seems likely to continue the band’s chart streak (remarkably, of their ten official singles, eight have reached number one, while two peaked in second place).
Give “The Wind,” which premiered on The Boot earlier today, a spin below:
What do you think? Are you excited for ZBB’s new album? Between this track and Carrie Underwood’s new single “Blown Away,” are you prepared for country music’s most wind-intensive season ever?
