The recent influx of new music by Grammy award-winning, genre line-blurring group the Zac Brown Band (ZBB) culminated on Friday (Aug. 27) with the announcement of The Comeback, its first new album since 2019's The Owl.

Opening track "Slow Burn" hit streaming services in conjunction with the album news. It brings a summery and sentimental feel, making it an ideal follow-up to ZBB's current single, Top 20 country radio hit "Same Boat." Six of the album's 15 tracks have been unveiled, with  "Paradise Lost on Me," Marcus King collaboration "Stubborn Pride" and Luke Combs co-writes "Out in the Middle" and "Old Love Song" rounding out the list of streamable album samplers.

"'Slow Burn' is definitely about that first, young love," Zac Brown explained in a press release. "There are very specific memories that are tied to being in love for the first time. 'Slow Burn' captures the feeling of going back to places where the details of all those experiences that helped shape you come rushing back."

The Comeback arrives on Oct. 15 via Warner Music Nashville. It shares its name with ZBB's The Comeback Tour, an ongoing string of amphitheater dates featuring special guests Ashland Craft, Teddy Swims, Adam Doleac and Devin Dawson.

"The Comeback celebrates our collective resilience as a community," Brown said in a press release. "This music is about standing together and rediscovering our roots and what makes us human. We feel incredibly blessed to be back out on the road again, sharing these new songs with our fans. The only good thing about getting knocked down is The Comeback when it comes back around."
