The first hit of music comes in the shape of melody-packed, anthemic new single ‘Be Afraid’ is out now.

‘Reunions’ was recorded with the 400 Unit and produced by celebrated producer and long time collaborator Dave Cobb. Isbell is at the very top of his game and is widely acclaimed as one of the best songwriters and possesses a devoted audience who have pushed his last two albums into the Top 20 in the UK, and straight to the top of the US charts.

“Success is a very nice problem to have but I think ‘how do I get through it and not lose what made me good in the first place?’” he says. “A lot of these songs and the overall concept of this album is how do I progress as an artist and a human being and still keep that same hunger that I had when I wasn’t quite so far along in either respect.” Isbell’s solution: to go back in time with his hard-gained knowledge.

The result is a seamless collection of ten new songs that delve into relationships with lovers, friends, children, parents, and one’s self. There are rousing anthems that will have stadiums singing along, lyrical standouts that highlight some of Isbell’s best writing to date, moving looks at youth and childhood, a deep dive into the challenges of relationships, and deeply personal songs about alcoholism and parenthood. All of them offer us an artist at the height of his powers and a band fully charged with creativity and confidence.

At the back end of last year, Isbell sold out his inaugural, self-curated ShoalsFest, that took place in October in Muscle Shoals, AL, with performances from Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples & Amanda Shires, in addition to Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit. The band also performed a seven-night sold out run at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, making it the longest stand the group has had at the venue to date.

Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit will also hit the road in Europe during November, with ten dates across the continent. Following on from previous double nights at London’s HMV Forum and one night at the Roundhouse, Isbell will now take on the iconic Eventim Apollo on the 17th.

2020 is set to be a huge year. The sheer power and nuance of Isbell and the mighty 400 Unit is well and truly back and plain to see.
