It’s been six years since Dave Matthews Band released Away From the World, their last LP. Back in January, Dave Matthews Band announced their ninth studio album, but with zero detail, in addition to announcing their extensive Summer tour dates through North America. Now, just a couple months out from when they kick off their tour in Texas, Dave Matthews Band has shared further details on their forthcoming LP.
Dave Matthews Band’s ninth studio album will be titled Come Tomorrow and will be out June 8th from RCA, along with a bonus disc of live recordings. According to the band, Come Tomorrow was written and recorded between tours at studios in Seattle, Los Angeles and their hometown, Charlottesville, Virginia.
The band worked with a number of longtime producers and collaborators for Come Tomorrow, including John Alagia, Mark Batson, Rob Cavallo, and Rob Evans. Alagia helmed their 1993 debut Remember Two Things; Rob Evans helped engineer 2005’s Stand Up; Cavallo produced their 2009 album Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King.
We expect to see Dave Matthews Band previewing songs from the record on their upcoming North American Tour, which kicks off May 18th in Woodlands, Texas and runs through September 10th in Los Angeles. Through May 17th, each online ticket purchase will include either a physical or digital copy of Come Tomorrow.
Back in February, longtime Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley announced he was taking a break from the band and touring, but it is unclear whether or not he will be featured on Come Tomorrow. Batson, answering a fan’s question about Tinsley’s status on Instagram, appeared to suggest that the violinist participated in at least some sessions for the LP. Batson wrote, “Not sure of the final tracklist so don’t know which songs David will pick for the album.”
However, the producer went on to confirm that the late woodwind player LeRoi Moore would be featured on Come Tomorrow. Batson added, “There is LeRoi music on this album!!!! I know at least one song. Again, some of the music was so powerful people had tears.” Dave Matthews Band has yet to release a track list, or any other information about Come Tomorrow, but you can check out the cover art by artist Béatrice Coron below.
