Dave Matthews Band took a year off from the road, returned for an outstanding performance at Hangout Festival, then returned to the studio with their old friend, producer/engineer Steve Lillywhite to record ‘Away from the Sun’. The title comes from a line in one of the songs and it takes on a larger meaning looking at the album as a whole.
Dave talks the impetus of the song Mercy and other new tracks, working with Lillywhite again, egos and fears, and how he got a children’s choir to shout out loud. Listen to the interview and a few tracks from “Away from the Sun’ below. Feel free to comment, share, etc.
‘Away from the Sun’ arrives in full tomorrow.
