Dave Matthews Band Announces New Album ‘Walk Around The Moon’ set for May 19 release on RCA Records and coincides with announcement of their 2023 Summer tour.
Today also marks the release of the epic and ominous first single release from Walk Around The Moon. “Madman’s Eyes” weaves Middle Eastern textures with heavy horns and strings as Matthews asks unflinchingly, “When it’s too late to untwist the knife / How do we face hatred with the love inside us.”
Most of the album’s 12 original songs were recorded with producer Rob Evans, including the first single, “Madman’s Eyes,” which was released today. Longtime collaborator, John Alagia, served as executive producer of the album. Walk Around The Moon took shape during the pandemic and is as much a reflection on the current times as it is an urge to find common ground.
