The recent influx of new music by Grammy award-winning, genre line-blurring group the Zac Brown Band (ZBB) culminated on 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 "Same Boat."

"'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 arrived 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."

The title track mirrors the broader theme described by Brown. Musically, it's a Heartland rock anthem, worthy of inclusion in the band's high-energy stage show. Lyrically, it praises American resilience as our society still adjusts to the pandemic that marred 2020.

Its video complements these themes with footage of the first responders that didn't stop putting it all on the line at any point in 2020 and the entertainers returning to stages in 2021.

Additional album highlights range from the gorgeous, acoustic-driven "Wild Palomino" to Southern rock scorcher "GA Clay."
