Today sees the release of Away from the World, Dave Matthews Band‘s eighth studio album. It’s notable for a variety of reasons, but primarily because:
1. It’s the first studio album to not include material from LeRoi Moore
2. It marks the return of producer Steve Lillywhite (who produced “the big three”: Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash, and Before These Crowded Streets)
3. It’s simply a new DMB studio album!
Regular readers know I’m a DMB fanatic and I’ve written about the group at length before and in three other MTH-V entries (here, here, and here). Simply enjoy the debut single’s video (“Mercy,” which features much many fan contributions) and get your copy ASAP. (My “super deluxe edition” should arrive any minute…)
