Our favorite storytellers, The Avett Brothers, are back and haven’t lost their touch. A new album is on its way and with it, a reason to find something to look forward to in what, to date, has been a pretty disappointing 2020.
But with the announcement of The Third Gleam, which should drop August 28, the band has released their lead single and video ‘Victory,’ a ballad that takes them back to their acoustic roots and delivers the kind of mellow and heartfelt lyrics that we’ve always loved from them.
But, the group isn’t immune to the circumstances of the world at large and were quick to take to YouTube with an official announcement that from their ‘Victory’ they acknowledge the struggles of the world, the timeliness of their lyrics and that there is light still to be found, even in the darkest of times.
Check out their newest single, ‘Victory’ here, but be prepared for the mellow melancholy signature sound that made you fall in love with them in the first place. Or check out the new video below. Either way, don’t miss the opportunity to pre-order the album. This is the kind of magic you need in your daily playlist.
So, what did you think? Is ‘Victory’ your new go-to for the song-of-the times? The Avett Brothers’ PBS Special, aired July 11th at 8pm EST/5pm PST. You can get a sneak preview of their upcoming concert special, it can be viewed here.
