Dave Matthews Band have announced that their eighth studio album, Away From the World, will hit shelves on September 11, 2012.
Fans have already gotten a taste of the album’s sound, with the band regularly performing some of the record’s songs on their current tour. “Mercy,” which the band debuted earlier this year on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, is set to be the first single.
The full track list also includes audience favorites “If Only” and “Gaucho”:
1. Broken Things
2. Belly Belly
6. The Riff
7. Belly Full
8. If Only
10. Snow Outside
11. Drunken Soldier
Producer Steve Lillywhite lent his skills to the new album after contributing to the success of DMB’s first three albums, Under The Table And Dreaming, Crash and Before These Crowded Streets, which are certified six-, seven- and three-times platinum, respectively, by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Away From the World will be available in digital, CD and vinyl formats, including deluxe and super-deluxe versions. The deluxe version will include three exclusive live tracks, and the super-deluxe version also comes with a DVD and a 2012 tour photo book. Pre-order versions, available on the Dave Matthews Band website, will include five additional bonus tracks.
