Zac Brown Band have always prided themselves on diversity, so it’s quite fitting that their new album is titled Jekyll + Hyde. The new CD marks the group’s first via a new partnership with Southern Ground, John Varvatos Records and Big Machine Label Group. Clothing designer-turned-music exec Varvatos has one word for the new set of tunes: “insane.” And Brown just hints to expect the unexpected.
“Over the last seven or eight years, there’s been a violent growth around us, having five kids, the growth of all my businesses, and touring, just figuring out and getting settled in. So now, we had the ability to unplug for a few months,” Brown explains. “This time, I feel like this is the most important record we’ve ever made. I wanted to make a new partnership for this record. I think we’ve got a lot to prove. I want to get better every year. That’s the love for it. I want it to translate, and I’m willing to do the hard work to get it there.”
