Grammy Award-winning singer Jason Isbell and his band the 400 Unit have returned with their new album, Reunions.
Reunions was produced by critically acclaimed producer Dave Cobb (who’s worked with country artists such as Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, The Highwaywomen and more), and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A.
For Isbell, the record is a showcase of significant personal growth—both as a person and an artist. “I found myself writing songs that I wanted to write fifteen years ago, but in those days, I hadn’t written enough songs to know how to do it yet. Just now have I been able to pull it off to my own satisfaction. In that sense it’s a reunion with the me I was back then,” he shared in a statement.
The ten-track project features the previously released songs “Be Afraid,” “Dreamsicle,” “Only Children” and “What’ve I Done To Help.” It also marks Isbell and the group’s first full-length release since 2017’s The Nashville Sound.
“With the last couple albums, and especially this one, it finally sounded right,” he told The Tennessean in an interview. “I think a lot of it on this record had to do with the production, because we were able to get sounds that were really transportative. I wanted to do that from the start. I wanted to be able to take a listener from wherever they were and put them somewhere else.”
